i tried for 3 weeks to mix my inherited bantam cochins with my standards. though they now have a quieter "peace" in the coop, it has come at a cost - my poor frizzle has no feathers on her head and her wing feathers do not exist which i did not see until last night when i caught her to calm her. so last night i moved the 4 bantams to a pen on the other side of the yard away from the standards. question: i have 4 three-week-old silkie bantams in my garage brooder and will be giving them a fenced portion of the standard's run with their own coop attached when they are old enough to be put outside. if i put the silkies iby themselves n the bantam coop/pen, can i then move adult the bantam cochins in with them or will i have the same problem of the bullying between the bantams? how do you all do it when transitioning new chicks with existing chickens?!? as cute as the chicks are to have and watch grow, as much as i love bantam cochins and their courage, i am feeling like a chicken failure in this area and don't know that i will do this again.
