    I'd like to get a roo for the banty hens, but not sure how to introduce him to my RIR and other young roo.

    One roo is good, or 3, depending on how many hens you have. If the new banty is full grown, there will probably be trouble. If you only have a few hens, there will probably be trouble. As I said, depending on how many hens you have, I'd keep the boys separate, and relay them, and even then, there will probably be trouble. I'm new at it as well, so good luck.
