    I have two OEGB bantams, they were "brooder brothers" and do not mess with each other. Hope that helps.

    How old are they. Because my papa had some and when they got out they fight crazyy i think they don't see each other and when they do they get mad. I mean the bantam will fight a big game rooster.

    Mine were hatched end of march this year. They aren't top dog in the pen, 5 other roosters (Cockerals) in that pen. We are thinning our rooster stock, so they won't get the chance to do much fighting.

    I've not had a big problem with OEGB agressiveness. Not anymore than any other breeds. In fact, I find them nicer and less agressive than most roosters. If they have enough space and enough hens they are fine. Too crowded and too few hens I think any roosters could fight.

    I purchased 2 pairs of OEGB's 2 years ago, from two different breeders. After quarantine I put both pairs in with eachother and they never fought.
