    is verry proteective he bosses my big roosters around and thats alot of gut because my five big roosters are verry agressive and attack anny thing that moves once one of my hens was being closed in on by an eagle and he landed and tried to eat her and all five rosters ran up and attacked the eagle and changed its mind.

    Sounds like you've got good roos. They work as a team to protect their flock, and they recognize that the bantam is not a thread. Perhaps they view him as a child or as a hen, due to his size, and so they tolerate him.
