I currently have 11 production red pullets and 1 cockerel, plus another btb maran rooster. I am in need of a good broody, and there have been plenty of bantam cochins floating around on CL lately. How well do you folks think they will interact with the bantam cochin? Being on the bottom of the pecking order is one thing, but being pecked to death is another. My girls are sweet, but do squabble amongst each other on occasion, especially around roosting time. Eventually I would like to get some marans, but I really want some chicks this spring, so a girl up to being broody in the next month or so would be ideal. Any thoughts? Should I plan on separate living arrangements?
