I have 10-15 Bantys that mix with my 40 layers, 2 coops and in the evening it's a mad dash to the coops until the roosts fill up and then they may switch coops for a night or two, no problems for me.

I was worried about adding a 1 1/2 yr. old sebright hen to my crew of big girls but in 2 days, she was ruling the roost. Sassy little breed! :D Or at least mine is.

Well mines really nice but the rooster is another story lol yeah the only thing I'm worried about is just adding 1 and if the rooster tries to mate the lil gal uh oh haha but I think I'll try it. And 7chicks do you have more than 1 bantam in your flock ?

the best way to introduce a new bird is to put her in the coop after dark when the other chickens are roosting
every time you add any new bird to a flock there is a bit of pecking and picking on the new ones ,
this is completely normal and should settle down in a few days or so
