We recently bought A few hens and the store all wet bantams but we wanted a normal size one so we asked them and they told us she would just me a regular sized laying hen… well turned out she was a Cornish cross we are never going to eat her she’s on a restricted feed and always free-ranges with the bantams just like one of them and when she needs a break all of them join her in a group huddle! It’s the cutest thing to see. The problem is that I don’t know how there sleeping situations should be because we recently got 2 more bantams so the hen house space is limited and it doesn’t help she’s the size of 3 of them combined, she never even roosts she just sleeps next to them on the floor. Should I let her sleep on the bottom of the hen houses caged area because she will be safe from predators (we have practically none) what do you guys think?
