Can you mix Orpington and plymouth barred in the same flock? All hens.
Do they need to be quarantined before mixing?
Sort of your choice there.
If I had any doubt what ever, I would quarantine for a few days.
Sort of a where did they come from question?
But you can mix breeds. They will find a pecking order just fine.
If you get your breeds from the same place at the same time - you can skip the quarantine. If you already have an established flock and now are adding new ones - by all means DO quarantine.
