    I'm fascinated with the beauty of BB Red Old English Game roosters and am interested in getting a couple simply as exhibition birds. Something tells me though that they're a handful, potentially aggressive and quite loud. And I'm basing this on nothing but a gut hunch and the cocky way these roosters carry themselves.

    Just how loud and annoying and difficult are we talking about? As with any breed, I understand it's on a case per case basis, but there must be some qualities and characteristics that generally apply to these particular roosters. How well do they get along with other breeds?

    I'd love to hear of people's personal experiences with them. I would be adding a couple cockerels to the collection of new chicks listed in my signature file.

    they are the sweetest things in the world and not aggresive at all, not louder than any other bantam rooster.

    I had one that was just beautiful.He was no louder than any others.But he was game as they come,and he hated my guts.He was in a pen with some hens.He would meet me at the door at feeding time and was hell bent to keep me out.If he hadn't been so darn pretty, i would have made shake and bake out of him.
