I am planning on ordering chicks this spring, but my father in law - to be keeps advising me against ordering two different breeds of chicks because he says different chicks from different breeds wont get along and i will end up with dead chicks! I am distraught! I am hoping to get some RIRs (his choice) and blr wyandottes ( my choice) both breeds are the same size and i am planning on 1 coop with separations for two sets of chickens. I am planning on separating the hens and cockerals until they grow out of adolescence, and ultimatley will havfe two groups of chickens. There will be two runs to keep them separate. Or can i keep different groups together and separate tyem for breeding? I am brand new to chickens and byc and would appreciate any info or advice! Thanks!
