    I was wondering...in all my newbie excitement, I ordered several different breeds to hatch. I have some bantam and some standard size. They all *should* be friendly and I have enough space that they won't be crowded. My question is if they grow up together, will chickens of different adult sizes get along together?

    I have bantam cochins in with standard Buff Orpingtons, Speckled Sussex, Ameracauna and Black Orpingtons and all get along very well. Believe it or not, the bantams are the top of the pecking order!
