    I put two BB Red Bantams and three Black Sex Links into a brooder together today. Can any problems arise from Bantams and normal chicks being in a brooder together or will everything be A-OK?

    Shouldn't have any problems at all. Just keep a eye on the temps and humidity, as the larger eggs will require more heat, then the smaller eggs.

    The way I have done this in the past is to place the larger eggs on a shelf higher up then the smaller eggs.

    Hope this helps. [​IMG]

    They have already hatched. They hatched on April Fools Day. I was just wondering if the three sex link chicks would pick on the two Bantams or possibly kill them in the brooder in the next few weeks. Thanks for any help.
