Please help!! Introducing Polish Bantams to Warrens?!?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have 3 warrens in my flock, 1 is around 3years and the other 2 are coming up to 1year. When we introduced the young ones to the older one there was obviously a pecking order to sort out but all in all things went great and now they couldn't be closer.
I've recently seen 2 young Polish Bantams I absolutely adore and would love to introduce them to my flock but worried they may get picked on too much?
Can anyone give any experience or advice on mixing bantams with chickens and if it's at all possible or the risks too high?

Also any insight into Polish Bantams in general I should know would be great as I have only just seen this breed so don't know anything yet! smile.pngsmile.png

Thank you !!!

Bantams raised in conjunction with large birds generally do quite well.  Bantams introduced to an established flock are picked upon.  Very frequently Polish in large fowl flocks have their topknots removed and their heads bloodied.
