    Your roo will be loud when ever he feels like it... which most likely will be often! Your eggs will all be fertile if he is able to figure out how to "hit the target". Some bantams do, some don't. When I was a kid, I had a bantam who had absolutely no problem siring chicks with the large fowl biddies. He thought he was God's gift to the chicken world.
