    Just brought home my first baby chicks the other day. I got three different breeds 4 of each kind. They are Golden Comets, Barred Plymouth Rocks, and Buff Orpingtons. Hopefully I didn't make a mistake in going with three breeds. Not sure if they all will get along okay but so far so good.

    Welcome to the BYC flock. The three breeds you picked should do fine together. It's good to have different breeds so you can find out which ones are your favorites. Then down the road you may want to get more of that breed.

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad to have you onboard with us!

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre (even if you have lots of experience), and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    This link may help you for the moment.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

    All the best
