    My daughter is in 4H and would like to show chickens for one of her projects. She is looking at Brahma and Oprington breeds. Will these breeds get along? Can anyone tell me which breeds do well together? She wants show and laying chickens.

    Pretty much any breeds will get along together if raised together :)

    G’Day from down under larryd01 [​IMG] Welcome and Good Luck to your daughter with her 4H!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Brahmas and Orpingtons are generally docile breeds. They aren't high production layers but are fine breeds in their own way.
