Another question from the needy lady - mixing standards and banams?

    Anyone have a small flock that is a mix of standards and bantams? Do they get along?

    The reason i avoided bantams in the first place, was that I was afraid they were more likely to escape my yard - either going over or under my fence... but maybe not....

    Any thoughts?

    I have only one bantam, my first ever Silkie...She follows Obelisk around like a little sister...Penny does get a peck every now and again so that she is reminded that Obelisk IS the Queen of the House.

    I have both and during most of the year they all run together. I only seperate them when I want purebred chicks. They all get along great.
