Hi my name is Josh I'm 33 and our family just got our first chickens. Completely new at this so I have lots of questions. We have 2 barred rocks 2 Rhode Island reds and 2 Cinnamon Queens all 7 weeks old and then my wife picked up 3 Bantams a couple weeks ago I think they are about 4-5 weeks old. Can I put them in the coop with my 7 weekers.

I'd wait ,the Bantams will never catch up in size to the others. If it was the other way around Banties being older than the larger fowl, I would have given it the green light.

I think your RIR's will bully the bantams. It might be better to have a bantie coop and one for the larger breeds. Others may have different opinions to share with you.
