    Alright, I caught my White bantam cochin rooster doing the deed with one of my New Hampshire Reds the other day, and yes the eggs are fertile, any idea what that would make? When I fire up the incubator this spring, I have to give it a try just to see what I end up with, but any thoughts as to what it would be have to be almost as funny as my little bitty rooster on top of a BIG NH Red Hen.

    I agree with Birch Run Farm. They will probably end up in size somewhere between the parents. Since pea combs and leg feathering are dominant they should express them and look more like a Cochin than a New Hampshire. I think their adult color will be a very light red or buff color. Send pics when they hatch.

    It is just funny, he seems to prefer the NH over his more appropriately sized bantam cochin hen. I can't wait to see what they look like.
