I am looking into getting more chickens but I need help. There are so many that I want but I can only get 9 more.

Please help me decide! Right now I have
1 buff orpington- Glenda (The good which)
1 speckled Sussex- Roger rose ( the rose is from when we thought he was a hen)
1 Barred Rock- Grace (just Grace no story behind it other than I thought it was a cute name.)
1 White rock- Daisy (she is a white chicken so why not)
1 Easter egger- Sabrina (I needed a neutral name, I did not know what color she would be)
1 silver laced Wyandotte- Duchess (She is such a princess)
1 rhode island red- Ruby (as a chick she was definitely a red head)
I just keep them as pets and I do not care at all about egg production.
thank you for the help!

You are kind of like myself. I keep a diverse variety and also as pets only. Get a Black Austrolorp, and that should round off your large fowl. Then get a batch of banties into the flock. They can live together with the large ones with little effort. ( I have a mix of big and small.) Get Old English game hen, A Seabrite, (gold or silver same temperament) A Polish, (very docile) and a Silkie. (super docile as well).. Then if you want a pocket bird. get a Serama.

WISHING YOU BEST

Serama is the absolute smallest chicken. Old English game hens are ancestors to the original Jungle fowl chickens. ( the Adam and Eve of chickens.) I have had all that I mentioned in my previous post, as well as a Jungle fowl hen. but currently only the OEGH, and a Japanese Bantam. Post some pix of what you have, we luv to see them.
Here are my banties, see if they are what you would like to keep.


OEGH, the variety is Silver Duckwing.







Japanese Bantam.
