Please forgive me if this is a really stupid question Do hens do ok if they are the only one of their breed? Or do they prefer to have another of their kind as a friend? I'm planning a small flock, I've never had chickens and am just starting to learn about them. There are several breeds/types I'd like to try and I'm just wondering if I should get the hens in pairs? I'm not planning to get roosters at this time. I don't even have a coop yet! Thanks for your help! P.s. I REALLY want blue and green eggs, my friend/neighbor wants white eggs, so what are our best options?
