    If I get day old LF and raise them with my bantams (by my broody)? Im thinking they will be taught the pecking order young so they may get along...less likely to be aggressive...

    If your broody accecpts them they should be fine other wise they are not safe with your bantams just the bantams are small. After you decide to move them in with the LF you will have to intergrate them into that group.


    ETA--Bantams can hold their own with just about any LF. The little buggers kick butt!

    Quote:Thanks for the response! I had a flock of LF and integrated 4 bantams, the LF attacked relentlessly. I ended up rehoming the LF and went all Bantams! Now I have a broody who deserves chicks, and I can get some day old LF. I was a little nervous about it.

    If you've got a broody, you could probably put DUCKLINGS under her! She'll raise LF chicks just fine and it will be a hoot to see her protect her huge babies from the rest of the flock. [​IMG]
