I've ordered my spring chicks, nine ladies of various breeds, EEs, BRs, RIRs, couple of sex links, an australorp. I have three older hens right now, but I plan to retire them to my friend's barn when the babies start laying, so that I don't crowd everyone. I'm really tempted to add a polish to my order, but from what I've read they don't always do well in mixed flocks. Also, they're only available as straight runs, and I rather wanted to avoid the rooster thing. But, OMG, they're fabulous. What to do?
