New to the forum and to raising chickens, but i'm super excited for my family to have fresh eggs and for my daughter to be exposed to the values which accompany raising animals. I'm putting an McMurray Hatchery order together and started wondering how different breeds would co-mingle. I was wondering if Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, and Rhode Island Reds would co-habitat well together. If not do you guys have suggestions? Im ordering 26 female chicks from McMurray's and will be splitting the order with a friend. So I need to figure out what 13 to keep. Thanks in advance and have a great new year!
