Hello! I am looking to get some chickens in the spring, mostly for eggs, but also because I think chickens are beautiful! Ted has 30 acres, and he'll be building a coop over the Christmas break from work. I'm thinking of having about six hens and a rooster. Does anyone have any advice or comments on having a couple different breeds? My thoughts were to get maybe four ISA Browns and maybe two Delawares. My father raised a few chickens (bantams) when I was a child, so I'm not unfamiliar with their care, and I have a few friends locally that have chickens too.
