    In my new starter flock I have 6 buff orpington chicks (5 weeks), a lavender cockerell and a blue hen. I only have 1 coop and I am interested in getting more chicks/hatching eggs so my question is.....
    Should I get more BBS orps or more lavender orps? I plan on selling chicks and having a mini hobby going on. But I dont know if I should mix lavender in with the BBS and buff coloring? Or just get more lavender chicks and do strickly lavender breeding?

    Or will breeding Lavender with BBS get other BBS/lavenders?
