    I was wondering if it's possible for a bantam roo to breed with a standard hen.
    Little Rodney Roo has been doing the funky chicken with our standard hen SEVERAL times a day.
    Any way they might hatch?

    I have a week old chick that says sure...Mom standard RIR and Dad a Bantam fancy feather footed/silkie mix. the chick has feathers on it's legs but not the feet but is a little bigger than the full bantam siblings. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it grows up. Good luck with the hatching.

    Thanks!
    It was so funny, tonight Rodney the rooster was sitting on the eggs!!!! I went to check under him and he acted like a broody hen all puffy, clucking and angry with me!! Guess he just wants to prove that the little man can do it as well as the big boys![​IMG]
