Ok looking to add one more to my small backyard flock. I'd love a dark egg layer but I hear Marens are difficult. So it's down to these two. My other birds are a semi-mean EE (although she's mellowing some), a Silkie, and a bantam Cornish. I have a small coop with a decent sized run plus they get to roam my small yard for 2-5 hours a day. I live in north TX so generally mild winters (except this year) and HOT summers (the yard and run have a good elm covering the dirt bath areas for shade). I'm going to redo my run this month to make it more "fly-over proof" and then I want to add one of these birds. So which one would do better in my circumstances?
