    hi guys.. ive had chickens for quite some time now. most are large breed chickens. my white leghorn and araucana are small (only weighing around 1kg). i fancy the thought of having a few bantams. does any1 have their bantams and bigger chickens all running around in the same pen?? or is this a bad idea id like a couple of silkies [​IMG] is this wise? my chickens a quite laid back so i dont think they would bully the little guys [​IMG] and tips would be great.. thanks [​IMG]

    I have before the only problem I had was the LF roos trying to mate the bantams and not good if it's a big big roo.

    now I just have them all free ranging and all are doing good.
