they’re about 4 weeks and the bantam chick is 1/3 the size of the others. i knew he would be smaller, but i wasn’t expecting this much smaller. they don’t huddle but i’m worried about him getting smothered. should i seperate him? the temp indoors is warm enough that i could have him next to my bed out of the brooder. tyia :)

I've raised bantams and standard together multiple times. The bantams all did fine. The bantams may be small, but they aren't super fragile! There is no need to separate him unless there is actively a problem, he will be lonely an miserable if you take him away from his friends. Chicks need companionship.
