Are OEGB's agressive as standard size?

    I might consider getting these next spring and mixing them with my standards. But I need something that is able to "stand up'' for himself, since they (the standards) are agressive.

    Our OEGB are very independent (especially the hen). They are not aggressive at all though, IMO. They get along well with my standard chickens (but I haven't any standard games). The OEGB roo is the #2 roo in our flock. He is good to alert the flock to danger (but has a quite docile temperament and likes to perch on my daughter's lap or shoulder). They're great birds.
