Hello everyone! I am in Massachusetts and an about to start a small flock for eggs/pets. The breeds that will be available to me are Black Sex Links, RI Red ( both available the end of March) NH Red,Barred Rock and Buff Orpington (those 3 available mid April). I was thinking of starting with one BSL and one RIR and when they're available adding a Barred rock (I love the look of them) and a Buff Orpington . I'm a little worried about mixing the personalities of these four breeds... The Buff Orpington will likely get picked on. I would like a mixed flock of good egg layers that are Friendly as I have small children. I am also just looking to start with 4 chickens. Any advice would be appreciated !
