    As stated in my little bio below- I have 7 hens (BAs, BO, WL, RIR). And I just got a new roo, a banty. He's the same age but he's tiny!!!
    He's still in quarantine, but is this going to be a problem?! Are the hens going to accept a protector that is half their size?!

    I would introduce him maybe putting him in a cage inside the coop so that they can get used to seeing him first....I think it'll work out just fine.
