    So I decided I wanted chickens on a whim during TSC 'chick days' I purchased 5 pullets and my heart went out to what I think is a bantam who was being stomped nearly to death. Any ideas on what it is? Roo? Breed?

    Is it bad to have it with the other non-bantam chicks? If separated I feel there will be insuffient heat for survival?

    Hi from Kentucky![​IMG]

    When I hatch bantams and large fowl chicks, I put them together in the brooder. Everyone seems to get along just fine.

    It should be fine with large fowl chicks - welcome to BYC.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    When your chicks are several weeks old you can post pictures in the What Breed or Sex section of the forum- you will need clear pictures of the chicks and especially their combs.
