It is November and chick season is coming in four or five months depending on where you live. I started my year out with TEN chickens... because of one dog I now have three lonesome chickens. My poor rooster has lost all of his hens except two, and while I still continue to get rid of the "issue" they are still in danger. My chickens love to free range, and when we move I am hoping they will have 5 acres to range with no chance of a dog getting in plus protection from my six horses along with a bigger better coop. With these thoughts is.... chicks for next year to add to these three remaining chickens. I've decided to possibly order from www.mypetchicken.com. (Any thoughts on this provider?) I usually buy from Tractor Supply but I have decided I want a variety of chickens instead of my red sex links and my poor orpington rooster. Thinking of adding 14 chicks in next year, here is my possible list. (One of each) Acona Australorp Plymouth Rock Hamburg Wyandotte Chantecler Delaware Easter Eggers Rhode Island Faverolles Sussex Welsummer Leghorn Cochin Anyone see an issue with having this big of differing chicks? 13 out of 14 are excellent 5/week or very good 4/week in egg laying as that is all I do with them other then pets. (Main reason I'm very angry a dog keeps murdering them) Little cochin I want because I had a lovely little hen who would come and sit on my lap and let me pet her. I loved her, I really miss her. D: Anywho, all of these chickens are cold hardy, because I am in a state that loves to randomly be cold just as much as it is hot. I've read faverolles are very docile so it can lead to getting pecked on, same with the cochin from my experience. Do any of these birds scream aggressive? I want a flock that isn't going to be extremely differing in aggressive and docile chickens. My cochin got picked on quiet a bit by the others, which is why she may have attached to me. My rooster is a very docile rooster and I don't plan to have more then one rooster even with 15 hens. . This will be my second time merging chicks into a existing flock.
