    I have 12 standard size chickies and 1 banty silkie right now in the brooder. The only thing I have to do differently is make sure the waterer and feeder is not to high up off the ground. I put both on top of a turned over bowl to try to keep the shavings out but you have to make sure the banty can still reach into it.

    I kept losing my little silkie amongst all the others. It is sooooo much smaller than the others. Here is a pic when we first got them.

    Now the difference is even more at 4 weeks old. I just haven't had a chance to get photos!
