    While working on renovating my chicken coop I am researching all of the different breeds. I've narrowed my choice down to four different breeds. Australorp, Barred Rock, Black Star, and California White. Would it be okay to house these four different breeds together, or should I try to pair up the different breeds? Thanks in advance.

    It will be just fine! I have 3 of those 4 breeds and they are great together. Whites are crazy as all get-out, but that is just the breed. Love my rocks, though!
