Hi everyone just a quick question about keeping different breeds together. I currently have 8 pekins (7 hens 1 cock) and wanted to know if they generally get along with other types of bantams. Are they better with certain types?
The only bantam I've found that doesn't mix well is the Poland, and that's only because they can't see the others! They're not aggressive, but the topknot flops over their eyes. If you want to be sure that all will be well, hatch the other breed under a broody pekin and they'll be considered part of the flock from the word go.
Guinea fowl & a lot of surplus poultry equipment.
