From what I remember, keeping them together shouldn't be a problem, but, if you have cocks (also known as roosters), they will interbreed. If it were me, I'd keep them separated by breed based on the above, which might require a number of different chicken coops.

 

On the other hand, if you don't care about the breeds, just the eggs and meat, then let them live together. 

 

If I remember correctly from some of your previous posts, you live in Isan, right? May I ask where you got your chickens? I too want to keep a few of the chickens you have one day, so I'm looking for contacts / sellers.

In my experience, if RIR are in situ, they will be very aggressively defensive against newcomers.

I think you can mix those breeds without a big problem, the ones you need to watch out for are the crested breeds as they get beaten up on by stronger breeds.
