    If it has two legs and feathers then it is eligible for many bantam roosters.[​IMG] A bantam roster will breed as many hens as he can, even large fowl. If you get too many roosters and not enough hen...poor weakest rooster.[​IMG]

    He may be afraid of the big roosters for now, but give him time.[​IMG]
