Hello out there! The hubby and I are starting or own backyard flock. We are both excited and eager to get started.We have a coop well on it's way. We are leaning toward Indian Runner ducks and Orpington chickens. What do you think about a newbie getting a few different breeds of chickens? I have read and been told that it's best to start small and start with one breed. Also best number to start with? Opinions?
