HI all, dh just gave me the go ahead... To get 25 ish, laying chickens! I was thinking duel purpose.. Can I get a few diiffernet kinds that will get along? If I want all different kinds, should they all be day olds at the same time? Is is plaussible to get a rooster for each kind of hen? (In the hopes to have more free chickens some day) I know I want Black Australorps, What happens if I get say 25 of these and a few of a diffenert kind? Then what if the two kinds mate is this ok? Ok and the fianal question, I know a few people around here that have chickens for sale, any precautions when intrducing new ones to the flock (keep seperate for awhile) What happens if I don't? (Winter is coming, there gonna need each other for the heat!) Ok sorry, one last question.. I live in Ontario Canada.. If you were starting all over, what would you start with/what time of year? Thank-you so much everyone! I look forward to your replies!
