I was planning on getting just Orpingtons, but recently discovered Barnevelders and now I really want some of those, too! So pretty, and such nice temperament. They both seem like very mellow, friendly, easy-going breeds, which is exactly what I want. Both are prone to being bullied, but I'm thinking since both breeds are so docile and non-confrontational, they should be able to get along together... I'm new to chicken breeds though so I don't really know. I don't want to create any problems if I don't have to. So what do you experienced chickeners think? Would this be a good combination for a peaceful flock?
