Hi I just got 8 dixie rainbow chicks like 3 days ago. They're about 1 week old. I was going to get Buff orpingtons, but the place that sells the chickens sold out and aren't getting any more:'( Anyway, the rainbow chicks were the only females there, so, I tried to do some research on the breed, but there wasn't much about them. All I know is that they're a dual purpose breed and no 2 chickens look alike! I am wondering if any of you have had any experience with this breed? Are they going to be bullies to each other? Rainbows are the only breed I have in my flock right now so i'm just wondering if they'll get along with each other. Are they cold hardy? Are they friendly to people? I know that it depends on how they were raised but in general are they friendly/docile? I read somewhere that they lay around 280-300 eggs a year and that seems like a LOT for a chicken breed that isn't on the "top egg laying chicken breeds" list. I also read that someone has the breed and they are very aggressive to people!!? If anyone has ANY kind of information about them, I would GREATLY appreciate it!!! Thanks SO much!!! Here is a picture of them !
