This spring I posted on BYC a picture of some pullets that I purchased from a family who had bought the chicks purely to show her kids the life process of chicks. She hadn't paid any attention to breed or anything. Now that 2 of the 4 (there was one that ended up being a rooster so he was re-homed) are full size I am wondering if one is a bantam. Everyone on the post seemed to think the black and white was a cochin, she is half the size of her fellow RIR and leghorn, do you think she might be a bantam? Also, if she is bantam, is she going to be alright in my flock of 2 RIR, 2 leghorns and 1 sexlink? She is by far the smallest, I don't want her to get bullied. She used to be protected from the older 3 by her cohorts but now that they are so much larger than her they pretty much ignore her. Last question, she is beautiful and I love her fluffy little personality but my husband is pretty set on having a "useful" flock not a "pet" flock. If she is a bantam (and even if she isn't) is she going to contribute much to the egg production being such a small little bird, from what I've read cochin's aren't the greatest layers? What are your opinions?
