Hello all. First year keeper of chickens. I have mostly buff orpingtons but also have a production red, leghorn, and Easter egger. I'm considering getting some cream legbars or ameraucanas next year for some egg color variation. So I guess my main question going forward is should I really make a big deal about keeping pure breeds or should I just hatch a bunch of mutts? I can see the benefit of controlling the pure blood of the blue egg layers, but would require a bit of extra work. I have a large shed that I keep my chickens in but also have a smaller coop that I could keep a seperate breeding population in during the summer if I wanted to seperate the blue egg layers. What does everybody think?
