    My wife and I are getting back into keep chickens. The last time we had them all we had we RIR's. This time she would like to have a mix flock. From looking at breeds she would like to keep the following:

    Isa Browns
    Black Sex links
    Golden Laced Wyandotte
    Araucana Ameraucana
    Welsummer

    Those are the breeds she found at our local hatchery. Would these make a good mixed flocked or are some of them "meaner" towards other birds. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks everyone

    That sounds like a fine mix to me.

    Those seem like a nice selection! Hope all goes well with your future flock! [​IMG]

    This is going to be our first time with more than one breed. Looking forward to spring getting here so I can remodel the existing small coop we have here now and getting new chickens.

    I've had all those breeds in one flock and they've done well. Sounds like a very pretty flock, and some great layers there!
