    so we thought we had purchased standard chicks, 3, 1 week old, and 1, 1.5 week old. turns out they're all bantams [​IMG]. they are now 4 and 5.5 weeks old can we add a couple of standard sized chicks? how do we do that? or would it be better to get the first ones outside and in the coop and just start the process fresh?
    we're worried about the size of the eggs once they start laying, or since we have bantams should we scrap the idea of bigger chickens and just get 3 more bantams?[​IMG]
    help! and we thought we were really catching on to the chicken thing![​IMG]

    I guess so.

    I have 2 amerucana (6 wks) bantams in with some 4 wk old BPR's and RIR's, and they are around the same size.

    Good Luck!
