    I'll be getting my first birds in the spring and have been looking at both bantams and Jersey giants. Would having such a large size difference in the coop cause problems; would the bantams get beat up, or hurt from being stepped on?

    I have had bantams in with regular sized chickens. There was no serious injuries, but the larger birds were typically mean to the bantams. The bigger cockerels made me nervous mounting the bantam pullets. If you can, the bantams may be happier separated.
