The trouble with the meat birds is they will eat constantly if you let them. They may very well over eat, in which case you will have to process sooner than you would want. They may also keep the rest of your flock away from the food because there are so many of them. I would keep them separate if I had this as an option.

I would separate them too the only time I ever tried keeping them together the layers started picking on the cx for some reason they pecked at their feet until they bled, her to make a sperate coop
