    Hi,

    I have 8 RIR crosses (all 39 weeks old) in one coup, which I use for eggs, a pure RIR cockerel & a pure RIR pullet in another (both 10 weeks old) which I hope to breed from.

    I have just been offered a pair of bantams (I male, one female), as i don't want to breed with the 8 hens (I belive it is known for Bantams & hens to mate), would I be able to keep the pair of Bantams with the pair of RIR's or would the two cockerels fight?

    All your compants would be appreciated.

    Hi
    Roosters are roosters and they will be aggressive to one another.
