    I just spotted my little bitty EE Bantam roo cavorting with one of my large Light Brahma girls. After I stopped laughing hysterically it got me thinking. What would that result in? A medium sized chicken? [​IMG]

    Yes it does, the size comes up larger than the bantam but smaller than the standard. [​IMG]

    Yeah, she's a whole lotta woman for him! At least six times his size I'd say. [​IMG] I'll for sure need to keep them separate in the spring.

    Our Japanese Roo has mated with our Barred Rock hen many times and several of our standard breed hens. We ended up with some beautiful chickens that were medium sized. It defies the mind to realize these little toots can do this but they do !!!!! Nothing is more beautiful or hilarious than a banty roo chasing a large hen across the yard with his wings flared out, tail up and she's running as fast as her big booty can go !!!! And he will catch her !!!

    Hmmm, now isn't that a thought. I sure wouldn't mind seeing one.
