Hi Everyone! We are putting in an order this week for our chicks! Last year we had Guinea Hens (Never again! haha) So, after selling those to a friend last year, we are excited to introduce Chickens to our family We live in Northern New York, so cold winters, warm summers. So far I have narrowed down my wish list. I would like the following breeds: Plymoth Rocks Rhode Island Reds Buff Orpington (really, really want!!) Brahams We plan to keep these birds for egg laying and as pets. Would it be okay to mix these breeds and have them grown together in a flock? Much thanks in advance!!!
