    I'm thinking about 2 more. I have 6 already and all seems well. They're just a year old. Thoughts on another 2? Integration ideas? Am I crazy? I'm thinking Buffs because they're so easy going and great layers?

    Not crazy, are you getting adults or chicks. Both are integrated in the same way, penning side by side for a while with supervised mingling. Chicks are best integrated at around 8-10 weeks. Older birds can take longer due to them being seen as intruders. The key is patience and back up plans.
