Hello,i was thinking of getting a bantam rooster,but i've heard that they are aggresive,someone suggested to get a pair of Bantams(1 rooster,1 hen)because the rooster wont be as aggressive.
Does getting him along side a bantam hen make him less aggresive?

All roosters are individuals regardless of breed or size.

Unfortunately, many of the bantam boys do have what I call short man syndrome... they are cocky little SOB's and too many folks don't see it as an issue due to their size. :mad:

What is the point behind getting a rooster and why bantam?

My bantam roosters want to mate my large fowl hens. My large fowl hens don't think the rooster is worthy enough to squat for. And even my bantam hens prefer my large fowl roosters over bantam.

It's a very personal choice. I have had both good and nasty roosters in both sizes. Cockerels don't count and I never allow access to hens until they mature enough to have some manners.

Some breeds are feisty, and some are more docile, whether bantam or large fowl. There are many threads with excellent advice on keeping roosters and avoiding aggression. But none of them have suggested that having a hen will help.
Do you have other chickens? Keeping any chicken by itself is not such a good idea.

Yeah definetly will,i heard some folks say they are less agressive with a duo,so i got curious and made a thread:lol:.
Well I had the Rosecomb, two Speckled Sussex and a Silkie cross Cockerel and the Rosecomb was fine till the other Cockerels got more mature and he definitely is a Rooster that wants the ladies.
