    What do you feel are the friendliest bantam roosters? We have some little ladies looking for love and want to pick a nice fellow for them.

    Ameraucana roosters are probably the sweetest little guys there are besides Silkies. They are so sweet and they let my little sister man handle them on a daily basis which the look on their face makes it look like she takes their manhood away lol

    i've had great luck with silkie and cochin roos, they're such sweet boys! the silkies especially always take good care of the girls and are awsome with humans too [​IMG] i've also heard good things about modern game and serama roosters [​IMG]

    Quote:My sister had a Serama rooster who died of age related things a year ago and he would ride on her shoulder like a parrot it was so cute! I've had bad luck with cochins though.

    I recommend japanese, EE, or ameraucana roosters in the bantam size.

    Good ideas, thank you.

    Silkie roos are out, we currently have one that is the devil.

    Any thoughts on Mille Fluer d'Uccle roos? Our girls are extra sweet.

    My Serama roosters are awesome, they don't peck or bite and hop up on my hand to be held. They show off for the hens and fuss over them and I've never had any of my hens backs beat up from them.
