    I have small flock of 6 White Leghorns that are 10 months old. I would like to add some brown layers, & my TSC has RIR & Red Star pullets right now. Would either of those breeds be suitable to add? I'm just worried they won't get along.

    Those breeds should do fine together, providing you have ample space for that number of hens.

    Most dual purpose birds should do fine with your Leghorns. I'd stay away from ornamental breeds with them, but your Rocks, Reds, Wyandottes, Orpingtons, breeds like that should all be fine.
