Hi guys! It's that time of the year for Spring chicks. I need to get more chicks since my flock got taken by coyotes. I've narrowed what I should get to the barred rocks or New Hampshire reds. I have a few questions about which one lays more eggs, which one yields more meat and which one is more hardy? Also, which ones are better foragers? I am also wondering if I can put my chicks together with my two light sussex who survived the attack? Will they get along together and will the hens act motherly? Thanks for your help.
