    I have two roosters in my mixed chicken coop, one is a two year old light brahma (sp check) bantam and the other is a year old ( I guess he is still a cockerel, aracona. The aracona is the one getting all the ladies while the bantam just gets to watch (ewwwww). I don't have any more bantams but I feel kind of bad for the little guy. Would it be better to give him away to someone with bantams or will he get the hang of going after girls three tomes his size? My girls are BRs, araconas, and brahmas.

    my bantam roo gets on my Barred Rock hen, I don't know if he actually gets the job done, but he tries. I think yours will eventually go for it. lol
