    I have an important question. I have two bantams and five large fowl chickens one of my large
    fowl roosters "Hector" is being aggressive towards me. My dad has some roosters to get rid of but I'm not the
    biggest fan of them. They aren't friendly and hate me. One of my bantams is a rooster (he's a Polish by the
    way) can be watchful over the hens and mate them and be a good rooster toward my large fowl chickens. Will that work?

    It may very well work, but keep a close eye on them. Frequently Polish in mixed flocks get their crests picked out.

    It would probably work out :) Just not the other way around (Large fowl rooster with bantam hens).

    Marty1876 Hi Everyone!

    I've got a bantem barred rock with black sex link and California White chickens, and they're all getting along fine. Bantys are tough, thus the quote "like a banty rooster".
