    I have 3 little bantam roosters and i will have a total of 19 hens. I'm just wondering if they will need to roosters need to be in a seperate space or they will be okay with the hens. I don't really have a seperate space for them and I'm still not 100% I'm keeping the roosters. But I just wanted to know so if I do I'll know. Thanks!

    Sounds like there are enough hens for three little guys to be in with them. Are the hens all bantams, too?

    3 bantam roosters with a flock that large should present no problems. Give it a try and if problems arise remove/relocate/cull the offenders then.

    Thanks Guys! I just didn't want to seperate them if I didn't have to. A couple of them have even paired off and sleep together and play together. So very cute!
