    If you have a male LF and a female bantam, will the offspring be LF or bantam, and vice versa?
    I thought that a LF couldn't hatch out of a bantam hen egg because the egg was too small... can a bantam hatch out of a LF-sized egg?

    The offspring will be an "in between" size. The chick will fill the egg, then it will grow to whatever size it is supposed to be. [​IMG]

    Quote:"Should be " in between, but after seeing your sig line and what breeds are involved, I'm not making any guesses based on those high-production breeds. [​IMG]
