    Don't see why it wouldn't be a good idea. Plenty of people keep mixed flocks. :)

    You need a blue or green egg layer. Than it will be fine.

    As long as the coop is big enough for 5 chickens...it'll be fine.
    What is your concern?

    Need more info.
    How old are all the chickens?
    How long have you had each of them?
    How big is your coop and run(feet by feet)?
    How long are your roosts?

    Good pics always help folks help you find a solution.
