    I currently have two Brahmas, a hen and a rooster. I am looking to extend my chicken family. What types of chickens typically do well with the large Brahmas? Do I need to stick with that breed?

    I have three Light Brahmas, three Welsumers, Three Australorps, two Golden Laced Wyandottes and three dominiques. These were combined since birth. They are doing fine. One of the dominiques is head of the pecking order, the brahmas are somewhere in the middle with the Australorps and the wyandottes and welsumers are at the bottom.

    I would have thought the Brahmas being the largest would automatically be more dominant but that is absolutely not true in my case. The smallest breed is the most dominant in my flock.
