Hello everyone! I am VERY new to chickens and this forum. I am excited to be a member and to learn anything/everything I can. I'm hoping to start my first backyard flock this spring, so I will be reading, and researching everything I can, and asking tons of questions. And for my first question.... I would like to start off small, with three chickens and I would like to do a mixed flock. I have a young son and friendliness of the birds is probably #1 on my list. Fresh eggs are of course a benefit, but not the sole reason for my getting chickens, so they do not have to be prolific layers. I was thinking about getting a Buff Orpington, a Plymouth Rock, and a Brahma. Would these three get along well together and be good for a newbie like me? Thanks! I can't wait to get started!
