The more I research to make sure I am doing things right the more I get confused as to what type of chicken I want . I am only getting a small number of chicks (5) , but now my kids would like colored eggs as well as the docile pet breed of chicken . Is it possible to have 5 different type of chickens ( one of each breed) , if all are raised from chicks together and are supposed to be docile breeds ? Or do I try to just get 6 , 2 of each breed - would that be better ? 3 breeds I had in mind so far were Brahma , Wyandotte , Ameracuana , . These are some of the breeds I can get locally .
