Adding a rooster?

I've got a +1 year old flock of 13 hens (9 RIR & 4 mutts) plus a monster RIR rooster. The flock usually divides over the day, with half sticking with the rooster and the other half wandering off on their own (mostly the mutts).

A friend of mine knows someone who needs to get rid of their Araucana rooster. Would it spell disaster if I added it to my flock?

Would I be best off building a separate coop or not taking the 2nd rooster?

It depends on the personality of the roosters. More often then not a new rooster doesn't integrate well with an established rooster.
