Okay so ive asked this question a lot because i ve never had a chicken before. Would it be okay if i got 3 leghorns, 3 silkies, 3 polish, and 1 leghorn rooster??? Just to let you no these chickens and roo will be kept in the same coop. The coop and fenced in area are pretty big since i live in the country (MI) Please tell me if any thing is wrong here.

It will take a few weeks to get use to each other but there shouldn't be much trouble, but there may be a little bit of fighting between them!
Good Luck!

i would never but a large fowl breed roo with a bantam breed due to the fact that the large fowl rooster can injure or even kill a bantam hen by accident

If they were raised together I doubt you'd have a problem. I've always had my banties mixed with my larger sized hens and never had a problem in 15 years. My chickens always have plenty of room to free range and are never in cramped conditions. I've never kept the really small banties such as sebrights. Most of my bantams have been cochins, silkies, d'uccles and OEGB who have never had problems with my larger roos or even the hens picking on them. Then again, I DO NOT tolerate aggressive roos in any way. If they show aggressiveness towards another animal or person they are gone immediately. I've had Buff Orpington, EE, Silkie, Langshan and bantam Cochin roos with my favorites being the Buff Orpington for their gentle nature and beauty.
