I've never had chicken before but im thinking of getting some. I might get 4 leghorns, 4 silkies, and 1 leghorn rooster. Does that seem alright? I will have plenty of coop space and a big fenced in area since i live in the country (MI) These chickens and roo will be kept together. Anything wrong here? Any tips?

Just make sure you only have ONE rooster because if you have more than one, they will fight and hens will lose feathers.
Fox-proof your coop, so that nothing gets your chickens. I put a radio on overnight.
If your going to Free range them, try to supervise them, you never want a fox getting at your best laying hens.

I wouldn't do leghorns and silkies. Silkies are easily picked on and bullied. And leghorns tend to be shovey and mean. I had a white leghorn hen bully one of my silkie girls to death :( if you are looking for a good layer and tempermant I'd suggest Sexlink hens for a mixed flock.
