I am new to having a backyard flock. Was thinking of getting a rooster to help lead my girls a bit. They are free range and rarely stray far from the coop, and sometimes they end up roosting in strange places, not making it all the way back into the coop for the night. So I was thinking a little leadership and a rooster to follow might be good for them. My question, my hens are all full size. Would a bantam rooster properly take charge where he would be so much smaller?
