I don't mean two examples of EVERY breed out there. What I mean is last year when I bought chicks for the first time I bought multiples of each breed. I just thought that it would be nice to have at least two of each or the represented breeds in my flock. And it is they look so pretty...two black two white and two red against the green grass. Now I am looking to get more chicks this spring and I want to get a breed that goes broody. I have decided on Speckled Sussex and Dorkings if I can find them, also getting a couple EE's and 5 Swedish Flower hens in a straight run. The chicken math temptress is whispering in my ear "get two SS because you don't know when the Dorkings will be coming your way and each chick should have a same breed buddy." I need some logic so I can shut her up. Is one of each good? In my current flock they do sort out by breed. The girls that look alike hang together. If/When the dorkings come available I would like to have 2-4. We have room...my amazing husband is willing/eager to support my habit but I am hoping to have broody hens hatching their own eggs next spring but don't know that I want 6 broodies at once and for sure I don't want to end up on an episode of "Chicken Hoarders" But I don't want my SS girl to be lonesome as the ONLY singleton on the place. Am I borrowing trouble? Thanks!
