    Hi ,from Texas,Galveston area .Not sure if the four breeds i want to start whit will get along with each other and the weather here on the coast. Any and all help would be great. I plan to start with four birds,I'm retired and these birds should give me something to learn from and keep active.The breeds are: Wyandotte,Jersey Gaint,Plymouth Rock,Easter Egger.

    thanks chief bayne

    Although not specifically made for egg-laying, the breeds you chose are great dual-purpose breeds. (For meat and eggs) Breeds like those have great personalities and should be very outgoing.

    Greetings from Kansas, Chief, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! If the birds are raised together as chicks or introduced properly they should have few problems getting along. Good luck to you and your birds!!

    Welcome to BYC. Raised together the breeds that you mention will get along as well as any. Understand that chicken society is frequently cruel. It's the nature of the pecking order.
