    Would my japanese bantam cockerel have a chance at being dominant over a standard sized barred rock cockerel? They're both the same age and are being raised together, along with several pullets.

    I think a lot of it depends on attitude. My Japanese roo was very submissive while I had him, but my dominant roo is a buff orpington which was easily 5 times his size, and was there first. I think if they are raised together, attitude is more important.
