    Still putting together my homestead flock.

    Was going to have some mixed heavy breed dual purpose hens with one Standard roo. I was also thinking of maybe getting one breed or so of banties.

    My question is will the Standard roo see the banty roo as competition and always beat up on him, or will he see him as a different type of bird at let him be for the most part?

    Back when I had chickens, I had a New Hamp roo and a Mille Fleur (sp?) roo. The Mille would occasionally bully the NH but there was never really any trouble. For the most part they ignored each other. That was just our experience. Different roos most likely make for a different sitiuation.
