    i want one of theese little birds but would they be agressive towards other bantam/standard roosters. i know the standerd breeds are really mean and cant be together.

    what im saying is are they mean like the big oegs

    I really, really loathe the idea that all game birds are mean -- that generalization just doesn't hold up. If you're asking if an oegb rooster and another roo would fight? Very likely yes. Would they be horrible to hens or would the hens fight? Probably not, if housed with adequate space, good food, and decent mental stimulation (things to scratch at and forage for, etc.()

    Try the breeds section with your questions. Sorry I can't help but I am sure there are folks who can.

    I have banam OEs they do just fine with others but I have noticed, and this is the same for all breeds I have here, If you raise them as chicks and let them be with the older chickens you already have they are just excepted as they go older no fights and such. But if bringing in a older chicken there will always be a fight. Hope this helps.
