    We are getting meat birds and my kids want some white rocks. I was wondering if they would be ok together. Thanks

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. The only problem to take into consideration is that the meat birds will grow twice as fast and big as the other chicks. They will also be ready to butcher in 8 wks. :thumbsup

    Hello and :welcome
    You probably shouldn't have problems when they're still small, chickens that grow up together tend to get along. :lol:
