    I JUST got a pair of bantams from this animal fair, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is anything special I should do to take care of them.:confused:
    Thanks!

    Bantams need the same TLC and "regular chickens"

    You will want to go through the integration process to introduce new to your established flock. The kindest, gentlest way is "Look but, don't touch," method. You should be able to find it via the search box.
