    If I have many bantam roosters will they fight at each other like standard roosters will?

    Up until recently I have had about 15 bantam cockerels in the same pen.

    I also have about 20 standard roosters in my main pen together, and another 5 in a bachelor pad.

    Neither bantam nor standard roosters will fight if they are given enough space to get away from each other easily; once they determine who is dominant and who is subordinate they will simply avoid each other.
