My husband and I had chickens 50 years ago and then went into more lucrative ventures as a vegetable grower with farm stand. Now I am going to have a few fun chickens together in a separate side of the coop with quails. We have 6chickens who will start laying in about a month and want to introduce bout 12-5 more. Want fun looking ones and large eggs and would like to know how different ages meld together. Would love input.
