Okay I just bought a new Brinsea mini advance with an egg turner. I am dying to try it out, soo the only rooster I have is an old english bantam rooster and he is in with 6 full sized barred rocks which lay faithfully even with the cold Maine winters. They have lights on timers change water twice daily and collect eggs twice a day. There are also two old english bantam hens with them, but have not laid since fall. I have found most bantams don't lay hardly at all in the cold, or atleast the ones I have don't. Anyways I looked at info online about a bantam rooster mating with full size chickens and if it was possible. The internet said it was and I am now trying it out. I was just wondering if anyone has done this or am I crazy for trying or even thinking it is possible? I have cracked some eggs and they seem fertile but I am sooo new to this I don't know. Any info would be great?!!!
