Hello all! I am very new to chickens...I started out with 2 chicks from a farm store Easter weekend. I have no idea what breed they are, they are just now getting their wing feathers. I am looking into getting 25 new chicks, hopefully within the next few weeks. It all depends on how soon my hubby can build the coop!! my question is do I have to separate the different breeds of chicks or can they all live together? I am interested in: 4 Barred Rocks, 4 RIR, 4 New Hampshires, 4 Araucanas, 2 speckled sussex, 3 silver laced wyandotte, 2 golden laced wyandotte, and 2 buff orpingtons. Is there an issue with doing this when I order from a hatchery? (thinking of Healthy Hatchery, Cincy) They were all so beautiful, I couldn't decide!! we were thinking of an 8'x12' coop with a 8'x40' run (adjacent to our garden) Is this sufficient for that many birds? any advice is appreciated!!
