Your pens are extremely small, so would need to be a true bantam.

Yeah bantams is what I want but I'm not sure what breeds they will be indoors at winter and night and I'm going to have outdoor cage to let them scrape away and pick through the grass

Personally i dont and wouldn't keep birds locked in remember, these are chickens not cage birds.
There are 3 distinct sizes in Soft Feather Bantams, True, Heavy and Light. Then you also have game.

They will be running about during the day but they will be in at night and winter due to that there is so many foxes in my area
