Hi All! My banties (3 roosters and 1 hen) are 4-1/2 months old now. My RIRs are 2-1/2 months, but slightly bigger than the banties. However, my banty rooster has my RIRs so scared that he won't even let them eat unless I physically separate them. He is very obviously the ruler of the pack, but holy cow, will they ever reach a time when they can live together peacefully? The RIRs refuse to go outside of the coop on their own as long as the banties are anywhere to be seen. So, I took them out the door of the coop into free range space today, just so they could enjoy the outdoors. The banties were inside the run, and not able to get to them. Anyway, I know they are just being chickens. I guess I just hope that once the RIRs get full grown, they don't take their frustration out on the little banty who has tormented them for the past month.
