Can silkies/bantams be trambled by full size chicks in the bator?

    i will prob have 2 silkies in the bator if they hatch but i will also have around 30-40 full size chicks in the bator if that many hatch so i was wondering is there a threat to leaving silkies and other bantams in such a small space with full size chicks?

    Yes, this can even happen with all same size birds during transit.
