    I had two sweet Frizzle Bantams, but unfortunately one didn't make it.....so now I just have Lou.
    I can't intro her to my 3 snarly Doms or my EE because they're too big and bossy.
    What breed can I possibly get that would be a good companion? I just can't stand her being alone. She's even beginning to crow!!!!! She lays daily.....hardly ever missing
    Thanks for any help u can extend my way!!

    How about letting her eggs collect in the nest and go broody on them? That way she could hatch and raise her own companion(s)... no potential fighting, getting a new bird that happens to be mean, no grace period of them having to get used to each other etc..

    The eggs could be either whatever breed that strikes your fancy or have a little rooster visit her a couple times and let her hatch her own eggs?

    If you do not mind Broodiness? A Silkie or another Bird with the same feather type would be best...Sometimes regular feathered birds peck at birds of another feather...

    Cheers!

    Most other feather footed bantam breeds should be fine. Another Cochin, or silkie are the best fit, as well as d'uccle. Those with feathered feet seem to be a bit more gentle than clean legged varieties.

    As mentioned letting her hatch is a good way too.
