Next spring, (It just may be a little early to be thinking about this ) we are planning on getting many chicks. So far, the idea is that we will get 10 Red Sex-Link Hens for eggs, and then 10 pullets of my choice for my 4h shows. I think I'm going to get mainly bantams. Now the question is, will the bigger red sex link hens pick on the smaller bantams, even if they're raised up together? I have red sex links now, and we added a few adult speckled sussex hens, and they get picked on a lot. We want to keep my future bantams in good shape, so I have a good chance of winning! So will they get picked on? They need to be in tip top shape!
