    Does size really matter? My king roo right now is a Serma (bantam) and I have roos that are only 3 months old but are larger breeds. Is it likely that one of the larger breeds will take control of the flock when he get to be of age?

    when the younger roos are old enough they will challange the older roo and may eventually kill him.
