I am sure this has been asked a gazillion times... I swear I searched and was unable to find a definitive answer. Can I have different breeds in my flock? What is the minimum amount of 1 breed I can/should have? Could I safely have 1 chicken of a few different breeds. I have found a few breeds that have caught my interest and of course I want them all! As I am sure you can tell I am new to this. I do have one Chicken (I believe she is a black star) that I acquired when I got married. She is 10+ years old and her mates have passed away so now she has made friends with our goats. I really want her to have friends (of the chicken variety) but I want to make sure I do it correctly. Thanks!
