    I have several 2 day old standard cochins and a batch of 26 bantams that are 1 and 1/2 week old....i would like to combine them...what do you think??

    Since the older ones are bantams, are they about the same size??? If so, I'd give it a try, but would keep a close eye on them to monitor the situation...

    They should be good since the bantams are older. I have a batch of 6 older bantams in with 5 younger LF right now and everyone is doing fine. The bantams are about 3 weeks older than the other guys.
