    Hey all i need some Advice right now i have 2 coops and all of my chickens are in one its big enough for them all but i have many big hens and 4 bantams should i take the bantams and put them in a coop by themselves? im just curious because one of my Delawares doesn't seem to like one of my Rose comb bantams very much and i didn't know if maybe it would increase egg laying for the little ones if they had there own space and also i have 2 bantam roosters and i was wondering if it would be okay to keep one of them in with my big girls any advice would be great thanks!

    Since you have the luxury of having a second coop, I would put all the banty hens and your favorite banty roo in there. Although many folks just keep them all together, I've done better by seperating my bantys from the big birds.

    I keep mine all together with no problems so far. If I did have a problem, I would separate the bantys and maybe even get them a boyfriend. [​IMG]
