Can Bantams and bigger breeds coexist without trouble generally?

    I have some little chicks in the brooder, and wanted to get a few layers for eggs now.
    The little chicks are going to be decent size hens.. Amberlinks, EE, Leghorns, etc..
    The layers I have picked up are VERY heavy, large white hens.
    Was told they are white rock, not sure really?
    Anyway, I also picked up a tiny Bantam roo, and am considering going back to buy a little hen for him
    Then, I have two little silkies. Could these breeds coexist ina coop & run without trouble usually,
    or will I need a separate area for the little banties?

    Lesson learned, no harm done. I've done that a few times too.
