I'm the proud owner of 6 Araucana (or maybe Ameraucana or EE) chicks and I just ordered 4 Buff Orps and 4 Golden Comet chicks. Then I read on this site a cute pictorial story about Buff Orps (the lady had 5 of them) and she said she got only BO's because they were so timid they tend to be picked on. These 6 Araucanas are pretty bold and brassy and I sure hope they don't pick on the BO's! The hatchery lady said they can all go in the same brooder box since they are only a week apart in age. Any thoughts on this. I really do want a mixed flock!
