Introducing Standard with Bantam Flock?

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by Rooster Rules, Dec 10, 2012.

  1. Hi, want to add 2 or 3, 12 week old Barred Rock pullets with my 5 Bantams, 2 roosters, 3 hen/pullets, born June 2012.
    Coop is 6ft X 8ft, it is very cold here now, so they have to stay inside. Some pics of my flock.

    Quarantine first! Make sure they arent sick, so keep them separate for a few days, then, at night, stick them in the bantam coop with the lights off. And thats just about it..
