    We need some advice on putting Colunbian Rock Bamtams with Large Breed chicks. Bantams are 2 weeks old. The Large breeds are 9 Orps, 10 EE, 7 Sexlinks are 2 weeks old and 5 RIR are 3 weeks old. Just got the Bantams today. Would they be ok if we put them with the others? Thanks on any info.

    I raised my bantams with the large breed chick's so that they would be used to each other! I think that it's important that you do, because when they get older, they might pick on each other if you put them together. It shouldn't hurt. Just watch them carefully! :)

    If you have LOTS of space and a place for the newbies to hide if needed...it would probably work out.
