Can my roster breed my bantam hens

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a Rhode Island Red rooster and some bantam hens that I would like to hatch some chicks from. Could my rooster fertilize these hens eggs or would I have to get a bantam rooster?

I personally wouldn't, a large rooster could hurt the smaller hens, whether the eggs are fertile depends on the rooster and his abilities.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
