    I got myself 3 bantams, one which seems to be a roo. He might not be tho. I got to standards for my friend. One also seems to be a roo. The standard roo is is so sweet. I might want to keep him. Would we have problems with the 2 Roos and 3 hens? If we would, how many more gems would we need?

    Given enough space (so that the bantam can get away) they MAY get along. 3 hens is probably not enough hens for a full size rooster unless he is not overly large.
