I have two questions for you all, but need to include some background info first. I have four 2 week old chicks now- 2 Ameracaunas, a RIR, and a Welsummer. I wanted at least one Dominique chick but the breeder says theyve been delayed again. Im afraid at how hard it will be to integrate chicks that are 1 1/2 months apart. (This is my first time with chickens- Im tryin to keep it as simple as I can.) I would like two more chicks though. The breeder has these breeds: New Hampshire Red, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Black Jersey Giants, Barred Rocks, and Buff Orpingtons. 1. What have you guys experiences been with these breeds? Im reading a lot of conflicting info online and in my books. 2. How do I go about combining the two groups of chicks? I'll have them in two separate brooders for a little while just to be sure the new two are free of disease and Im going to try to get them as close in age as I can. Thanks in advance all!
