Now, my other boys can stay AWAY from her. I'm afraid they'd kill her in an attempt to mate with her. Only my most polite roosters are permitted to reproduce. The human aggressive ones aren't permitted to live. All the others live with the goats. LOL

Seriously?!  I've never heard that one!

They actually touch vents and you've hatched eggs from this union??

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

 Would I get in trouble if I posted a video of them? LOL

Taz is a normal sized Polish, but compared to her he is very large. Yes, they've touched vents. The bantam only lays an egg a week, so there is only one in the incubator now. When I candle the eggs in a few days I'll tell you if it's growing!

No, you wouldn't get in trouble.

Would people think badly of me if I'd really like to see that video?

LO​L!! We'll call it an educational video. If I can catch them in the act I'll post it and tag you.

 

Edit - forgot to mention... I've cracked her eggs open and they have the bulls eye. So, he is fertilizing her eggs.
