Well, Malay's are some big ol giant orientals, and are game. You can't keep them with other chickens, just in case you didn't realize this. I have Saipans, which are darn near the same thing, except they get bigger, and aren't quite as game. My avatar is a Saipan, even though it isn't the best of pics...lol. He normally stands very upright, but wouldn't for his snapshot! He is around 2 1/2 feet tall right now and around 10 lbs, and he still has some growing to do.

Thanks CUDA. Lol I figured I'd have to keep them seperate from other birds. I was thinking I'd keep 1 roo with 2 hens in one pen, and 1 roo with 1 hen in the other pen... just so all the roos are satisfied and the eggs are kept fertile. I'm just hoping they wont get too aggressive!


CUDA: Is the flight pen you showed me awhile back, is that for malays? Because there is a smaller looking bird in it. That is an excellent looking pen by the way

Actually, I have my Saipan's in that pen right now, one cock, and 3 hens. I had them in with my turkeys, but the turkeys kept pulling feathers off my hens. You do understand that if you have the Malay's, you won't be able to free range any other roosters unless you have something around the bottom of the pens like on mine. If you try it, you will end up losing some birds from pen fighting. Trust me on that...lol One other thing, once you go oriental, you will want more. They are some of the smartest, charismatic birds out there. You just have to have patience though, they grow really slow, and need a high protein diet, plus they eat way more than other fowl. BTW, they should not get aggressive to you, but will kill other roosters. Good luck!
