    I have 17 australorp hens, and have always had the same breed. I was thinking about getting another breed of hen. I was wondering if anyone knew if certain breeds of chickens didn't get along??

    Generally speaking, breeds intermix very well - breeds with crested heads, feathered feet and/or silkies, though, can sometimes be easier targets for bullying in a mixed flock due to their different appearance and, in the case of the crested breeds, a tendency to impaired vision. Ultimately it will come down to the temperament of the individual birds vs. a breed generality.
