So my coop is nearly complete along with the fence and I'm now looking at ordering chicks. I plan on having a total of 6 hens and no roosters. I do have a few questions though. 1. Can you mix breeds? I'm new to all this and wanted to have a variety of birds before eventually expanding and picking my favorites to stick with. (1 Rhode Island Red, 1 Black Australorp, 1 Speckled Sussex, 1 Barred Rock, 1 Buff Brahma, 1 Ameraucana) 2. Does anyone recommend a site to buy your chicks online? I was thinking of ordering from Meyer Hatchery but would like to hear from anyone who's ordered from them or from other sites. As always, thanks for the help and feedback!
