Is my flock a good combination?

The last time I ordered chickens I had a combination of Barred Rocks, RIRs, and Buff Orpingtons Pullets. I ordered the same thing this time except I added Welsummer and Delaware Pullets. I also received a surprise Rhode Island red rooster. I have a total of 17 chicks. Does this flock make a good combination? I would appreciate any help.

Most any breeds can be mixed and matched without an issue. The chickens don't know they're different breeds. Though I wouldn't trust a RIR cockerel as far as I could... well, I could throw a chicken pretty far, but you get the point. Most RIR cocks go mean, a lot more often than any other breed.
