    My neighbor does it all the time both ways so it should probably be fine for you to do it, though you should sneek them in at night.

    I've brooded bantam and large fowl chicks several times and never had an issue. The age difference shouldn't be a problem.

    My 6 bantams are the ones that act like lunatics and my 3 naked neck pullets just look at them. One of my bantams jumps straight up in the air and flips for no reason. I just shake my head at him.

    I think I see a mille fleur d'uccle front right, and a old english game banty in the middle (with the V head), and maybe a silkie or two.
