    If I add 2 bantams to a flock of 5 will the standard five chickens pick on the bantams?

    Are they hens or Roos? They may get picked on, but will normally work it out. I had terminal problems with a polish in with my LF flock.

    Worst case, they will be no worse off than any chickens at the tail end of the pecking order. put them in the coop after dark and keep an eye on them for a few days. That is the worst time for new birds in the flock.
