Perhaps it's time to start a new flock. I only have 2 production reds left and they are about 5 years old and production is almost nill. One isn't doing well, there is a new post under diseases. Here's the real question though. What breeds would make a good mix? I can only have 4 due to city ordinences. They must be friendly and get along as they can't roam the yard and will be in an eighty sq ft coop/run at all times. Must be able to stand Texas summer heat with shade. I'm not after maximum production of eggs, color of the eggs is not important either. Just a friendly, colorful mix of girls.
