Hi. I am starting up my flock. I have 4 3-day old black Australorp and 4 2week old Easter eggers. I would like a friendly, colourful mixed flock with colourful eggs and dual purpose birds. So I am trying to decide what to put with them. The choices right now are day old Cream Crested Legbar (pullets), day old Speckled Sussex (because they are so pretty) or 5 week old Ameraucana X Easter egger that may be old enough for sexing. My coop is 9 x 7.5 ft. x 6.5ft high. The nests boxes hang out the side. The run is about 6 x 23.5ft. It is only temporary until we can get more fencing material to make it bigger (approx. 10 x 26ft.) Any suggestions or recommendations? There are so many wonderful breeds of chickens that it is hard to decide!
