Mixed flock....how far can I go?
I currently have around 25 chickens, all full size and about 9 different breeds. So far (except for a few squabbles) everyone gets along ok. They all free range during the day on about 1/4 acre fenced yard along w/my 4 ducks.
My son is interested in getting a couple of fancy breeds like silkie and polish but I am hesitant since they are so different looking I'm afraid they may get picked on? Does anyone have any experience with this?
