DH came home with GREAT news tonight! FIL said we could build a coop and run on our lot next to his house! So, now the hardest part. Choosing chickens for it. DH says I must limit to 10... but maybe I can squeeze in a couple extra Here's what I am thinking...... One each...... blue laced red wyandotte partridge cochin blue cochin black frizzle cochin buff orp blue orp polish - gold laced salmon faverolle araucanas (the tailless ones, right?) Something yet to be determined Now, if I have say 10 hens..... how many roos can I have? Could I have a salmon faverolle and an araucana? Will they need seperate coops? I'm not worried about mutts. But I wonder, if they are in one coop/run... and they split into two flocks..... what are the odds that my SF hen will end up in my Araucanas flock and vice versa???? Do they tend to be drawn to their own breeds by design? Does anyone forsee any temperment issues with this kind of a mixed flock? I am interested to see what happens when they mix. I'm a sucker for mutts I'm soooo excited!!!
