We have three RIR's and two Silkie bantams Bangle and Blondie :) The old hens don't really fancy the new comers, so we built a seprate coop for them (used and old dog kennel and put a peice of wood for them to perch on). give them time to work out the peking order and they would do ok I guess (we don't have time because it's going into winter and if they do get kicked off the perch they could get quite cold an catch a bug, ecspecially in nsw with all the wet weather). But they are truly the best pet, they bring you so much joy because they are the cutes, cheekiest little critters. We spoielt ours as babies now we have to carry them to bed every night. I highly reccomend you go along with the purchase. :)
