Skylines Vs. Cream Legbars

I'm looking to get some green/blue layers. I currently have five other hens - a lohmann brown, a bluebell, a blackrock, a mottled ranger and a cuckoo maran. I unfortunately can't free range, but they have a very large uncovered penned in area. Which would be better suited for my situation? I would greatly appreciate any advice you can give me.

Seeing as you have all hybrids at the moment it would probably be better to go with the skyline. Mixing vaccinated birds with pure breed unvaccinated isn't a good idea.

Just bought two skyline from o leary the day before yesterday. They are gorgeous. They are still very skittish but itís only been two days so Iím hoping they will settle in soon. But truly very pretty birds

Ok so it's looking like skylines are the way to go. Thank you for the help!

Can you please explain why Mixing vaccinated birds with pure breed unvaccinated isn't a good idea.

There is a chance that the vaccinated birds could be carriers of the disease that they have been vaccinated against.
