Hello! I am new to this forum. I've had my chickens for about 5-6 months. I have 2 bantams (silkie rooster and little hen) and 4 full size hens. The bantams have a small tractor to their selves. I have a larger tractor for my 4 full sized hens. I usually free range the bantams in the morning as they will easily go back into their coop. Then I free range the big girls. I can never get them to go back in till the suns going down... I've been really wanting to let them all out together, but I'm afraid to. The one time I tried a while back, one of the bigger hens and a rooster that I used to have attacked Cleo (my bantam) and she flew away and I couldn't find her for a long time. I thought I had lost her. I haven't tried again since that happened. The hen didn't really attack her as badly as the rooster I had did. I got rid of him, but I'm still afraid she will get hurt. She seems like she wants to be let out even when the other girls are out.. I let the silkie roo out with them once and he was fine. They had a little scuffle, but he is a rooster and he let them know it. The thing is the bantam is so TINY. If there's any chance she will get really hurt, I'd rather just keep her separated, but any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
