    I'd like to get an OEGB rooster, but not if he'd fight with my other roosters and chickens.

    I'm getting several standard breed cockerel chicks and pullets this spring and will eventually seperate the roosters until butcher. My other pen will eventually hold all layers with our resident rooster. The options for the OEGB would be in the layer pen with one other rooster, or in a pen with several roosters. Would either work or do I need to just enjoy pictures of those attitudes-with-wings? :)

    OEGBs should do just fine with large fowl. I have not had any problems with mine.

    Thank you! I read a few places today that he should do fine, especially if he's raised with the others - which he would be. Glad to hear that's been your experience.
