    Hi all. I am thinking of getting a roo and don't know what kind. Have 2 golden commets, 3 barred rocks and 2 bantams.

    Have heard that RIR's can be aggressive and don't want that. I know there are no gaurenties[spell?} but would like to know if your Roo is nice? Friendly? Not a crazy bird? But would love to here about the crazy ones too.

    with Bantam hens, I would be carefull about getting a full size roo. Maybe a bantam roo? I hear they can mate with the larger hens. Just my opinion, I was thinking of the safety of the bantyhens.

    Thats an idea. I have a bantam sitting. Hope some hatch. If not might try to slip some day old bantam babies under her at night. Maybe get a roo that way.
