    It's getting close to the time to decide which pullets will be going to the fair. We are new to this and dont know what would be a good combination. We need to pick 3 pullets and luckily we have an accidental rooster(BR) in the bunch of 25. the pullets are: BR, NHR, BO, Buff Cochin, Partridge rock, Turkens(3 different colors), Golden Campine, Cuckoo Maran,BR, I think thats all. It was a "rainbow Mix" of layers from Orschlens. They were purchased Easter weekend, so they'll be about 3 months old at fair time. I'm about ready to put them in with the "big" girls, (10, BR and NHR) but they are "pickers" and I dont want to ruin the young ones feathers before the fair. Could anyone tell me what a good combination would be for a pen of three? with the BR male?
    thanks for your help.

    OMG, I just read the post about the Buttercup hen, looked at Feathersite, and realized that I dont have a Golden Campine, she's a Buttercup!! Trying to identify this Rainbow mix will be the death of me!
