A little too late for this question but I was wondering how many people have mixed flocks that run together. I currently have 2 BR hens and one roo, 2 araucana mixed hens and 8 assorted mutts (EE/polish/who knows what) that all run together and seem to get along fine. I have 4 BO pullets that are about 5 wks old now and was planning to add them to the rest when they are about 10 wks? Does that sound right? I would also like to get 4 more pullets to eventually add... does it matter what I get at this point? I was thinking maybe ameracauna, RIR or Marans? Any thoughts? Would one be better than the other? We have them for eggs, bug control and just cuz they are darn fun to watch out roaming the acreage. Thanks!
