My silkie roo can't get on top of a standard to mate. So I'm pretty sure he can't successfully make any of my hens fertile (On his own anyways, but I don't do that artificial stuff.) But I do have one bantam! But she's wierd.... He tries but she runs away and he chases.. He is THE top rooster, and only rooster, on the part of the frontyard where the babies are raised anyhow. She doesn't lay eggs either. And she doesn't look like a normal bantam buff orp. Any reasons why she doesn't lay and why she doesn't let Skippy mate with her? Also, I'm thinking of getting some other bantam hens. I think OEGB, or something similar, can he successfully mate with those? I love mutts of any sort and in the future I plan on making all sorts of mutts. I already have light sussex and barred rock!
