Hi everyone. I got one OEGH at the same time I picked up most of my chicks from TSC.

I picked out two bantams and shes the only OEGH. Do I need to worry about her being the only one? She is 3 1/2 months now and she's even smaller then my Silkies. She gets along great with all the others, probably because I got them all together. Will that change?

I wouldn't say she's at the bottom of the pecking order that would be my EE's but she's not the top. I read that they don't like to be confined. I cannot free range in town. Will that drive her mad?

I have their run built 10 square feet per chick. We are planning on adding some chicken tunnels to give them more space.

Here's a peak at her with the big ones. She likes to squeeze in the middle of them all, as you can see her poking her head out in one of the pictures.

Ha! Very cute! I have 2 bantams with 4 (standard size) brown leghorns, they are all the same age which is 8 weeks now. And they get along so well. Mine do the same as yours, the bantams squeeze in the middle if they can. There is more than one roost, and guess who gets on the highest one (which won't fit everyone)? The 2 bantams, of course. Always they get the top spot! Someone wrote that "bantams are little birds with big attitudes." So far that seems to be the case. These pics were taken a week ago.
These bantams are a Silver Sebright, and a Mille Fleur D'uccle.
