    I have a white Bantam Cochin Roo and was thinking about letting my Large Lt Brahma run in his pen. Will he breed her and if he does will I get Bantam or large fowl chicks?
    Or is this a totally bad idea?
    Also, can I let my large fowl run with my bantams....which I used to do because they were all hatched together, but I separated them because I had a LF roo, but he is leaving so I will only have the Bantam roo. My Bantam girls seem to be more aggresive than my LF so I am not worried bout the Bantams.
    Thanks!

    Yes, he'll mate her and the chicks will be an in-between size, most likely.

    COOL! She is just a pinch large for my coop doors, so smaller is great. (I have to keep the door small so the goats don't get in). I guess we will try it out and see what happens.
