    My little Frizzle roo - who right now is pretty darned nekkid and funny-looking, which I've been told is temporary - is very subservient to his "girls" - five mixed bantams - two Sebrights, one Silkie, one EE, one Polish. When the "chest-bumping" or challenging starts, he tries, but ends up cowering to whoever started it (and he is a teeny bit smaller than they are as well, which I'm sure doesn't help). Is he going to be a wimpy roo? He is extremely sweet and probably likes to be held more than any of them.

    OMG! Who could not love that little guy? He might surprise you, though, and grow into a magnificent beast!

    He is so cute...I think a little roo would be great, Im sure he will learn to hold his own! But what do I know...I'm new at all this.

    He's just a baby, he'll grow up and come to realize he's suppose to be in charge.
    He may always stay out of the hen fights though, if he's a smart roo. [​IMG]

    He's not even fully feathered yet! Give him a chance to grow up some...he'll figure it all out![​IMG]
