Bantams and large fowl together? Will it work?

    So I'm hatching a few eggs at Christmas but I was wondering , if I hatch large fowl chicks and bantam chicks at the same time will they be ok with each other when they get older? Will the bantams get bullied or will they not because they grew up together?

    In general they should be ok. I have had bantams ans large fowl together for about 3 years now with no problems until recently. I had a bantam rooster that would chase a large fowl rooster around while he was growing up until the lf roo grew up. I had to separate them once the big roo hit about 8 months and decided to fight back.
    I have had both size roo's that grew up together that got along fine tho.
