    We are wanting to start raising chickens. What would be the best type to start with? My husband would like to have brown eggs.
    thanks April

    [​IMG]. Where are you located? Certain breeds aren't as adaptable as others.

    Can you raise rabbits and chickens together?

    I wouldn't personally do it. The chickens could easily bully the rabbits.
