Hey everyone! I live south of Atlanta and have always wanted chickens. We live in a subdivision but I could possibly have the chicken coop in my backyard without my neighbors knowing. (My yard is pretty private with no house in the back. ) Anyway, I am wanting to "smuggle" some in. If I ask the association they will say no, so I was thinking about just doing it without anyone finding out. My friend has chickens and said the way to go is to get Buff Orpington chicks. I have been researching breeds and think they definately are what I want. What about silver laced wyandottes? Would they be okay to mix or should I just stick to one kind? They will all be in one coop, I was thinking around 4-5. I just want them for pets and eggs. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!
