My three Welsummer cockerels are mounting (or at least trying to) my Cochin banty hen. Are they really fertile already? She's laying on a regular basis now, I was wondering if the eggs are hatchable or not The Cochin isn't looking ragged or anything, they usually hop on then off again. Also, I let everyone out of the coop the other day (early morning) and when I checked on them later, the Cochin hen was sitting IN the pond! There is a little shelf-like area and she was just happily perched right there. She gave me a "What?!" look when I took her out. She seems happy and healthy, was she maybe just trying to cool off?
