Hello, I'm searching for a few laying hens to add to my flock. I currently have an EE rooster and an Australorp-mix hen that are both 1 year old. I'm trying to add some hens that will get along nicely with my existing 2, while giving my rooster a little more to do throughout the day. He focuses all his energy on my hen and it doesn't seem like a proper balance.
Ideally, I'd like hens that I can Integrate immediately after their quarantine period. I'm pretty new to this, but it sounds like I should get birds that are roughly the same size and that are known to have an even temperament.
Thanks for any leads!
