I have two straight run chickens, one hen a batam and unknown rooster who may become dinner soon be is very aggressive to Ben and people. My grandsons won them as chicks. I am wanting to replace rooster with a couple more hens of small stature. Any suggestions? We have had these two since Oct 2017. We have a coop that holds 6.
We live in a small town. I found yall with amazon app.

I adore my bantam Cochins [or Pekins, depending on from where you hail]; they are such sweethearts but are very prone to going broody frequently ;)

With regards to your rooster, BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. This one may be helpful:

If you do want to rehome him, your State Thread as Pork Pie suggested is a good place to try or, after you have made the required 20 posts to qualify for participation, you could try on the BYC Buy, Sell, Trade Forum.
