    I don't have bantams, but I do keep multiple roos. I have 2 LF Cochin roos in with 18 hens(with 12 more in the brooder!). They get along pretty well. I do see them occasionally kick each other, but I've never notice any evidence of bloodshed. They each have their own little harem of ladies, and they take good care of them. My coop and run are pretty large though, so everyone has room to get away should a squabble start.

    I have 2 frizzle bantams. One is bantam cochin. The older is 7 weeks old. The younger is 3 weeks old. I plan to keep them in a coop seperate from the hens. Will this work out?

    I have 2 pekin (cochin) bantam cockerels seperate from our flock, they grew up together and are very cute together 99% of the time with the odd squaring up! They will call each other to tastey treats, and never leave each others' side, hope this helps!
