    Ok,last weekend I got some type of bantam.She is so tiny,we call her Itsy.She fly up and perches on you, she lets you pet her,pick her up,and she even falls asleep in your hands.

    We got rid of our lead rooster and our cockeral.Big fights between the brothers.We decided on keeping Zeus,since he is more of a pet.Zeus has also been treating Itsy very nicely.I just have one concern.She probably doesn't even weigh 1 pound.The owner of her said she was about to start laying.Zeus weighs about 5 or 6 pounds and I was wondering could he crush her?And if he is able tto mate with her,would he be able to connect with her?
