Hello all! My wife, 9 month old daughter and i recently got a mixed breed flock of chicks. I believe its still too early to tell what we have as far as roos and hens. We have four australorps, three EE/ araucanas (not confident either way, the farm we got them from said araucanas but after looking at pictures on this site im not entirely convinced, and four buff orpingtons. We will soon be adding a couple of black copper marans too. Im curious about adding some 2-3 day old chicks to the group we have which is about 4 weeks old. Does anyone have some suggestions or advice on raising this many different breeds together? We have plenty of space with two coops already on the property we purchased last year so we can separate any if need be. Anyway this site is amazing and we are looking forward to having our first flock! I added a couple of picks of the brooder i set up in our sun room.
