Hi there! I’m new to this site and look forward to learning more about being a good chicken mom. I currently have a Rhode Island Red and a bantam. Sadly our other Rhode Island Red was eaten by a bear. We have just upgraded our coop to be more secure and are looking to add 6-8 new girls. I’m considering Plymouth Barred Rocks and Speckled Sussex. I’m wanting friendly, pretty hens that will produce brown eggs. I love to interact with them, so not looking for bullies. Appreciate any advice on these breeds living together or other suggestions.
