Can I mix 2 new 7 bantam hens with 4 young RI Red hens?

    Since 2 of my RI Red "hens" turned out to roosters (can't have them in this neighborhood), I was going to swap them for (2) 7-month old bantam hens… my hens are just over 2-months old and growing fast. Is this going to cause fights between the new and old?
    If it would put them in trouble, I won't bring the bantams here.
