I think I may have done a bad thing. I had a Buff Orp hatch 7 eggs of mostly full-sized chicks, one is much smaller than the others. So yesterday I'm at TSC and start feeling sorry for the tiny bantam chicks and end up taking 7 home with me. I deposited them with the hen and her chicks, added a heat lamp in case they all couldn't fit under/around her, watched for several (20 or so) minutes, and checked on them a few times during the night/morning. Everyone seems to be doing ok, even the 2 most rundown chicks from TSC, and no one seems to be picking on anyone yet. I'm now wondering though, if it was smart to mix bantams with full sized chicks. Is this a bad thing? I kind of hate to move them now because they mother hen has laid claim to them, but I don't want them beat up either.
