    I've worked with a handful of them and they were all friendly in general, though a bit on the hyper side IMO

    I believe that should be a rule with ALL chickens, heck all poultry! If there are ladies to be had, they'll go at it!

    I severely doubt the Phoenix rooster will get along with any other rooster. I have one myself and he is very belligerent to the other rooster, even though the other was here and established first.

    For the last four years I have had Phoenix and Dorking roosters running together, with younger cockerels until they get sold or eaten. I have only had one fight between the alpha and second. I sold the deposed alpha.
    None of them are the same age and they are free range during the day.
    If I were to try to bring in an adult rooster I am sure that the established males would attack on sight.
