Ok, I'm at the point now of purchasing my chicks. I want 2-3 and found a farm fairly close to me that has RIRs, New Hampshire Reds, Cuckcoo Marans, Ameraucana, Golden Buff and Welsummer. I'm wanting a breed that lays large eggs. I was thinking a RIR, Golden Buff and maybe a NH red. Is it wise to get the breeds mixed? Are these good birds for getting large eggs? The farm sells straight run only, but you can bring back roosters to get another chick.
