    I have been wanting to get more bantams and while (like everyone else) I would rather just have pullets, in a straight run what kind of ratio of roos is there?

    Also, how many little roos will cohabitate without killing each other. I can't imagine I could raise up a bunch of little fuzzy butts only to rehome the boys. So, I'm in a bit of a quandry - what do you all do? I have my layers who will be in a separate coop from the bantams. So far I have (or will by tomorrow morning) four milles' two hens and two roos.

    Any help figuring this out would be appreciated.

    If they grow up together there is a lot greater chance they wont fight as much as to introducing two completely new roosters.
