If you’ve been at the chicken thing for a while, you might be interested in adding some birds of a different feather to your flock. Check out Nutrena poultry expert Twain Lockhart’s advice on mixing breeds in your backyard flock.

 

Helpful tips:

• Some breeds that make good producers, layers and are friendly include Naked Necks, Wyandottes and Sex Links
• Bantams are miniature chickens and exist in every breed, but they do not mix well with the big ones
• Cornish cross meat chickens do not mix well with other chickens
