    I am thinking about getting bantam and standard hens....so I also want a bantam and a standard rooster, (they will grow up together) will they mix with out fighting?

    there is no way to tell if two roosters will meaintain a lasting peace. Be very sure to research your breeds as some breeds are MUCH feistier than others.

    My Dutch bantam boys are showing every ounce of the fighting cock ancestory they have. My stadnard white cochin would probably be ok with sharing a run with them, but they are little a**es so they are in bachelor quarters.

    be sure to get mellow breeds of roosters, such as a standard cochin and a bantam silkie. and then if they're raised together they should be fine.

    If raised together and if they have a good number of hens, they should be fine
