    If i mix a serama pair and 3 new wyandotte hens, will they be okay full grown? Keep in mind that the seramas are only 9 weeks as of now and I am on the verge of ordering the blrw chicks which will be very young. Will the serama rooster try to protect only the serama hen or all hens? I am new so any advice is appreciated!

    I can only speak from my experiences with my group.
    Personally I have found that my Wyandottes tend to get a bit aggressive toward the smaller hens.
    I like the breed but I am having to keep them separate for the safety of the smaller hens.
    I do not have any experience with Seramas at all. I did have a bantam Cochin and although small he was as protective of all the hens as he could be. I had a very large BA hen that was most clearly in charge.
    I am certain other people have had different experiences since all chickens are unique in how they interact.
