    My first Coop in No. Calif. I plan on starting with 3 pullets strickly for backyard egglaying. I read a Lot on all the different breeds but when I thought I knew what I wanted, I was told one of my choices would fight with the others.
    I just want one white, one brown, & one blue green large layer that will all get along. Can anyone suggest what I should or should not get?
    I'm thinking Easter Egger, Rhode Island Red & Leghorn?

    I have all those breeds plus others and they get along fine. Folks say the leghorns are flighty, and mine are, but not aggressive or at all mean to the others. These breeds will make for a colorful egg basket--that's part of the fun of having your own hens!

    Those breeds sound fine to keep together as long as they have enough room
