    Hello, I just picked up my new chicks today. 15 years ago we had meat birds only. We have moved several times. We are now settled into our forever home. I am going to attempt some egg birds. We picked up 6 Cornish, 3 bantam 1 silky, 1americana, 1 buff Orpington. Wish me luck, it has been awhile since I have chickens. I welcome any advice you can give.

    Yes, my husband plans on keeping them separate. Do you think that matters?

    I don't see any problem keeping them together.
