    Sounds like a nice variety. I wanted to add 4 to my flock this year, but you know chicken math. So my new chicks are 2 black copper marans, 2 buff orpingtons, 2 ameraucanas, and 2 black stars. That puts me up to 14, 2 more than I really wanted. Any rooster will get culled so that will probably take at least one from the count. I think next year i want to try hatching my own.
