    Hi, Just joined the group and have a question. I'm in the process of building a coop and yard for a few chickens, thinking about 4 aracaunas and 2 leghorns. (no rooster) Is there any potential problem with keeping those two breed together? Thank you, edmcm2000. (
    They'll be in an 8 x 8 coop with an 8 x 8 outside yard.)

    Shouldn't be, but why no rooster?

    One of my wife's friends has leghorns, aracaunas and EE's all living together and they get along fine.
