I'm still planning my coop and flock. I'd not thought about getting a roo, but everyone's stories about roo personalities re protection and finding treats and spoiling the ladies has got me thinking that a roo would certainly add to the entertainment value. I'm not keen on breeding, so it's not essential that I have a roo, or that the roo can service the ladies. That said, I have a few questions: - In a small flock (5-6, max), would a bantam roo get beaten up on? Or will his machismo protect him against full sized ladies? - How loud is a wee roo? - Will presence of a roo (of any size) encourage the ladies to go broody more often than they would without a roo around? - Would a bantam roo be able to satisfy his needs with the ladies, or is he doomed to a life of frustration? Fertilization is not my goal here, but I wouldn't like to compromise the little dude's Quality of Life. Thanks.
