Hi Everyone! I'm starting my first small backyard flock soon and need some advice! I have narrowed it down to 4 breeds and can't make up my mind on which ones to get. I am settled on getting 6 (to start) and would like to mix breeds if it's possible. Either 2 breeds (3 of each) or 3 breeds (2 of each). Or should I stick to one breed for my first time? I live in New England and need hardy birds. I also have small children. I am looking at the Black Sex Links, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, and the Buff Orpingtons. Would these breeds do well together? Thank you in advance!!!
