Hi all. Still a newbie to the forum although I've been lurking for the past few weeks doing a lot of reading. I've done some searching but haven't found anything in regards to a question I have. We currently have two chickens along with a few other small animals. Our new chicks should arrive around the first week of September. The kids wanted to do some bantams for 4-H so we ordered 6 of those total along with 4 other standard breeds of poultry. I know that once the chicks have grown enough to be placed out in the coop that we should let the birds see each other for awhile before letting them "mingle." Will the bantams be ok with the bigger birds, or would we need to keep them separated? Our hopes are to get two pairs of bantams and eventually hatch eggs down the road. I'm going to begin adding onto our existing coop to make room for the new kids but wondering if I should build a separate coop for the bantams. Thanks for any advice you can give!
