I have a Jersey Giant and a Buff Orpington. I had an EE till just a few days ago. I raised the 3 from day old chicks together but the EE always had a tendency to peck at the BO. I had it under control but while I was away last week, it got out of control to the point where I gave the EE away and the BO is still barely eating. I pull her out of the run twice a day and feed her handfuls of meal worms. She's SOOOOO timid. But she's my favorite hen in the world and I'll do anything to save her. I'd even give away the JG if I had to. But I don't see them disagreeing w/ each other so I think I'm good there. I want to add two more hens. I'm torn between a BO or a Barred Rocks or one of each. My main concern is that they are docile and friendly. I don't want any pecking going on. I know you can't completely predict that won't happen. But I need these gals to get along so that I know I can go out of town for a few days and that they won't kill each other. So I'm looking for advice from the group on what you would do. Would you only add in BO's? Or a mix of BO and BR's? I'm tempted to get a few of each even though I only want two more to bring my flock up to 4 hens. That way, I'm guaranteed that I'll get the two that I want. And that I'll get two hens. I'm happy giving the others away. I know BO's are so docile, that it makes them easy targets for being picked on. But I've read that BR's are quite docile too. What have your experiences been with mixing the two. Do it? Don't do it?
