    It really depends on the bird. Some are really nice others are agressive. My experience with them has been that the hens are sweet, sweet little ladies. The roos can be agressive but they're only that way if you're messing with their ladies. The fact is they're so small if they do flog you it doesn't hurt. My sister has one that terrorizes her dog. He will cross the yard to attack her poor aussie. He will also fly up on her and her dh's shoulders and sit for a visit.

    that sounds good i halve 10 hens and a rir rooster thats my brothers and would like 3 more 2 oegb hens and a rooster. i just hope the big rooster doesnt pick on him and if he did i hope he would be big enough to defens itself. the do halve ALOT of space in their coop though

    From what I seen of them they can hold their own. My sister's BA roo is the second in command. Frosty the little guy rules the roost.
