In the Brooder
- Aug 7, 2020
I currently have one hen, who is a rescue. She is a Barred Rock. I think I want to get her a sister in the spring. Any suggestions on a good breed if I want to switch it up? I was thinking a bantam of some type as her coop is custom built for her, and could house one more chicken comfortably. I also don't want her to have territory issues, as that's why I ended up with her in the first place. (She was picked on severely.) I was hoping maybe a bantam breed would be easier for her to accept? She's very sweet, and loves my cats, so I don't anticipate problems, but I am a new chicken mom. I live in Illinois, so weather is very hot, very cold and everything in between. Currently Andrea has her coop and is out in my back yard daily for free range time. Any suggestions are appreciated!
