    We hatched 6 millie fleurs, 2 porcilin fleurs, 1 banty mutt (come from our coopand is small) and 3 standard mutts(also from our coop.) Are they ok all in togather? I have them in a little box in the quail brooder right now because we didn't want to put them outside. they don't seem to be trampling eachother but the size difference is remarkable. When my batteries for my camera recharge (both sets) I'll take a picture. Crystal

    I know! I have one standard to my four banties and man.. my standard looks like a t-rex compared to the others! i think she may even be the youngest! She gets to a lot of the treats quicker but I think it may be just because of her personality. She doesn't appear to pick on them even though you think she would.
