    Can these two share a brooder and not drive each other crazy?

    Actually the question is:
    Can you raise one banty and one standard, together in the same brooder from day 1, or will the size difference be too much?

    I guess the follow up is, what kind of banty Cant Fly and is friendly.

    I have hatched, brooded and penned bantams and large fowl. I currently have OEG, black rosecomb, copper black maran, cuckoo maran, and orpingtons ranging in ages from 3 weeks to 6 weeks together.

    So yes it can be done.
