My flock was killed by a pack of dogs last week. So, I'm needing to start new. I can only have 4 birds now due to new city regulations. Has anyone had any experience in getting 4 different types of birds. I'm thinking of getting 1 of each type...Buff Orpington, Barred Plymouth Rock, Rhode Island Red & Black Australorp. I'm just worried that I will have 4 loners & they won't be paired up like my last chickens were. I had 2 each of the Barred Plymouth Rocks & 2 Rhode Island Reds. They tended to buddy up by type.
