    Ive recently added to my flock of welsummers and leghorns, I have 2/2. I have 11 new pullets and 1 cockerel which are at 5 weeks and I have 2 new pullets and 4 straight runs that are only a week old. Are there any certain breeds or precautions to be aware of when mixing flocks. The 5 week old flock contains, 1 Cream Legbar pullet and 1 cockerel, 2 Silver Laced Wyandotte, 2 Barred Rock, 2 Speckled Sussex, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Buff Brahma, Cuckoo Maran, and a Splash Andalusian. The one week olds consist of Buff Orpington, Black Sex-link, and 4 straight run Ameraucanas
