I have a mixed flock of rainbow layers from McMurray that are a little over a year old. My very petite Egyptian Fayoumis hen, Ellen, has a bad leg sprain and is now in isolation. I think Ellen is too small for a my Easter Egger and Wyandotte roos and was likely injured during mating. Since she is so small (2# 9oz on the baby scale at my office where I took her for an x-ray), would she do better housed with some bantams? I've considered starting a small bantam flock anyway. They would have a coop and run separate from the bigger birds. I worry that Ellen is too big to be with Bantams, but too small to be with my current flock.
