    I have 3 White Plymouth Rock hens, and 1 Plymouth rock rooster.
    Also I have a few game hens that keep their distance and 2 (I am not sure yet rooster or hens) young half-breeds. Will the half breeds ever be accepted by the rock hens?
    They are roosting up in a tree with the mother (game hen)

    Thank You,

    Sure, chickens can't tell breeds apart, they all get along.

    Well, I'd say that yes, they will eventually get along, especially if they sleep in the same place at night. The chickens call tell each other apart, but that doesn't mean that they won't get along.
