Here I go again wanting more babies! I have been wanting 4 runner hens to complete my flock thought now is a good time being inside more in the winter and by the time their ready to go outside it would be late march/April and warmer. I have 3 pekin drakes 2 buffs 2 black Swedish and 4 crested all hens. Would runners work well with them (drakes are housed separate and always supervised when with hens. Color does it matter or is it a personal preference. How is their disposition and egg laying, any advice on this breed would be great. Next big question was going to order from metzer farm I believe they California based I'm in va is that to far to ship them safely. I ve ordered as far as Texas before no prob but ca and va are a ways apart.
