So we went out and got 6 chickens. First we got a RIR and a Golden Buff. Those two have been together in the same run/coop from day one and are doing fine together. Then my wife went and got 2 baby chicks (they're about 3 weeks old now) that are both Ameraucanas and a Silkie that is about 8-9 weeks old now and a Brahma that's also about 8-9 weeks old now. She's keeping the RIR and Golden Buff together right now, keeping the two Ameraucanas together, and keeping the Silkie and the Brahma together. I thought all along when we were building the 8X8 run with the 5X3 coop inside of it that it was going to be for all 6 hens. But now she (my wife) is saying she's nervous about putting them all together. Do y'all think that it would be ok for those six to live together in the same run/coop if we slowly introduce them to each other? Right now the Silkie and Brahma are in a small pen that is just next to the run that the RIR and Golden Buff are in. So they can see each other but are separated by chicken wire. If we let them do that a couple of weeks... and do the same thing with the to Ameraucanas later... and then put them all together will that be ok? I'm sure there's no way to be absolutely certain but I'm just wondering if in general different breed chickens can live together ok. Thanks in advance for advice on this.
