    I have a lonely Frizzled Bantam. Her sister we killed this morning by a rat. She is about 9 weeks old but so small! I'm worried about putting her in the coop with the full size chickens. Any Ideas?

    l will take her [​IMG] I have nothing but Bantams [​IMG]

    If she is your only bantam, goo chance she may get picked on by the standard chicks.
    You can try to introduce her in slowly....Best bet is to wait til you think she is done growing..Then you are going to want to put her in a safe cage like carrier and put that into or near the other chickens run area so that tey can see her, but not harm her. This will allow you to see how they will interact.
    If you decide to test the waters...make sure you are there the first several times, in case there is an issue and you have to go rescue her.
    This process can take some time.
    Another option is to get her some new bantam playmates!
    Best Wishes,
