    They will be just fine- most breeds seem to get along just dandy. I have a flock of 8 and each one is a different breed- including the 2 types you asked about [​IMG]

    Both of those breeds are docile standard breeds. Especially if you get them the same time as chicks, they will be fine. They will establish a pecking order, but no worse than children.

    I have only Buff Orps, but my DSO has a mixed flock. His Barred Rock is very meek, and low bird. No aggressiveness from either of those breeds.
