    How old are your bantams, what breed are they and where do you live? If they are a winter hardy breed, adults, and the coop doesn't have any drafts, then the bantams should be ok.

    I have two bantams also, and I was worried about them this winter also. I also have standard chickens, and the bantams sometimes snuggle ON TOP of the others.
    Maybe get more chickens?[​IMG]
