I have a few very general questions on mixed flocks - these are the types of chickens I wanted to get (first time to try this adventure) and I wanted to get a variety of breeds because I like the colors -- (i) will all of these chickens 'live together'? Orphington, Plymouth Rock, Wyandotte, and Australorp, and (ii) if I have a mixed bred flock and I want a rooster, which breed do I get? I know these are probably very weird questions, but like I said, this is my first attempt at raising backyard chickens and I just wanted to know. Thank you.
