Bantams and Hybrids

Recommended Posts

It very much depends! They have their own personalities and heirarchies, so sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.


I keep bantams and I added a couple of hybrids two years ago (because my pure breeds stop laying in winter and I still wanted EGGS!!!). The hybrids were definitely at the bottom of the pecking order with the established flock of banties keeping them firmly in their place at the bottom of the heap.


If you can free-range them, I'd say go for it, but if you have to confine them, that's when the problems can start.


Good luck with whatever you decide :)
