    I have 20 chickens and I know for a fact that the two banty's I have are roosters. How will this play out when everyone is grown? I am hoping for one standard size rooster out of the remaining 18 but was wondering if I can keep the other two banty's. Also, if I keep them in a pen by themselves during the day, will they drive the hens crazy after they return to the coop at night? I'm hoping everyone will just fall asleep, but is that wishful thinking. I love the two banty roosters and really do not want to rehome them. Any ideas.

    From what i can see if roosters grow up together they wont fight.
    i Had 2 roosters hatched as chicks of two different breeds, at about one year old they had one problem but after 1 became the boss the other one stayed away and their were know more fights. i dont know if a bantam and a standard would half promblems. bantams dont know their little so they dont back down if the other rooster is bigger.
