I am after 3 to 4 pullets. How would a silkie go with a cross pullet? Also what cross breed would you recommend as good with children and decent enough for eggs? RIR x RIwhite (isa brown) RIR x New Hampshire White leghorn/New Hampshire Black Cross: Australorp/New Hampshire Red Cross: Rhode Island Red/New Hampshire (light brown egg) Was thinking about getting an australorp would love a belgian d'uccle. do they only come as bantams? only found a breeder for a bantam ..
