    I think I was given a bantam BO with my two other chicks. I plan on intregrating them with my other two hens in a couple weeks. Will she be picked on since she'll be half the size of the other birds? The other two chicks already kind of gang up on her. But she is the smartest, sweetest, and swiftest by far. Anyone else have experience with a single bantam in a flock?

    Sometimes it can work and other times it doesn't. It will depend on your flock dynamics and set up. You will have to wait and see and be prepared to separate it out if necessary.
