In about 2 weeks I will be getting 5 Japanese bantam chicks for a graduation present. I currently have a healthy flock of 14 eight-week old chicks. We are just about to finish building the coop, but a question popped into my head. Since Japanese bantams are so different and tiny, would they need smaller nesting boxes or different food or anything? And yes, I'm aware that they must be fully grown until I can introduce them to the flock.
