    I have a mixed flock of Largefowl, a pair of silkies, and a brown leghorn bantam. The tiny little bantam is about the size of a pigeon but she rules the flock. When they eat she always gets her fill or she will peck someone on the head. Kinda funny that 5-7 lb chickens are scared of a 1 1/2 lb bantam! By the way the bantam used to be bullied when she lived with our previous flock.

    I don't have bantams, but I do have a small hen that bullies the bigger ones. It's quite funny.
