Hi All I am very excited to have joined this forum. My husband and I are picking up our three little ladies in just over a week. We have decided on bantams as we live in a suburban house, in Australia so while we have a yard, it's not huge. On order we have a Buff Pekin, Blue Leghorn and Light Sussex (all at point of lay from the same farm) but my big question is, should we also get a standard sized chook (or two!) to supplement our egg supply? I guess we want the best of both worlds - both pets and eggs, without going overboard...though I think we have already succumbed to "chicken math". Also we are thinking it would be better to get the flock started in one hit, rather than trying to introduce some standards later. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thank you!
