Hi my 16 week old leghorn x rooster is fertilizing the eggs of my 9 month old leghorns .He has been mounting them since he was 10 weeks .Are there any problems that arise with chicks of young roosters?

They'll probably grow up to be oversexed like their Daddy.

No problems. Leghorn cockerels are generally fast maturing.

This guy is crossed with a white sussex and is already twice the size of my leghorns .also is it normal that he only mates the white birds i have Australorps and lohman browns and he despises them and only attacks them all hens?
