    You shouldn't, they'll kill each other, do you keep the bantam roosters together?

    I never had an issue keeping OEGB roosters together. It's possible show type OEGs would be fine as well. I would suggest speaking with a breeder to see what their experience has been.

    OEGBs have been bred for type and so the instinct to fight has been bred out of them over many generations. I've had ones that grew up together do fine and I've bought adult males from shows and they did fine as well. I'm sure you could still have issues with individual birds, but it seems that overall they do just fine together.
