I love seeing the harmony of the little girls and the two bigger girls sharing food together, be it pellets or treats.

Speckles and Cinnamon eat pellets together

Emerald and Rusty share a piece of apple

Although Rusty’s head is slightly blurred because of the movement I loved this photo for the expression and body language of Cinnamon besides Speckles and it once again shows her tiny size.

Sharing a bit of apple

Now Freckles eats pellets with Speckles

I love being able to put treats out with no hassle between the girls. They look like a happy family which is so lovely to see.

    It gives me so much encouragement for the inegration I’m working on when I see the little ones next to the big ones!

    • In my experience a difference in size doesn’t matter that much, it’s all about personalities. I started with big girls then successfully integrated bantams. I then gradually changed over to bantams and then added seramas which are the smallest chickens in the world. When integrating my latest trio of seramas the bigger girls were no problem with them. It was Rusty and Freckles that were a nightmare. It’s always the bottom ones that are the worse because they want to move up the pecking order.
