    Hello Everyone, I've been sneaking around this site for a while getting some really good information and have now decided to join you.
    I have inherited two wee bantum's (Seabright and a Pekin) from my daughter who has 5 big girls, who refuse to accept the little ones.

    [​IMG] Just give it time. Your bigger girls will accept the little ones eventually. Just make sure that your little ones have plenty of hiding places to get away if need be. How old are the bantams? If they are really young (6 weeks or younger) I would give it a few more weeks before you integrate them. If they are older, than like I said before, just give it time. [​IMG] Adult hens are stubborn and don't take well to little ones. I have the same thing at the moment.
