I have 2 leghorns, 2 buff orpingtons, a cochin, a red something...smallish like the leghorns, a black mutt similar in size to the leghorns and a brahma -all hens. last fall I brought home two 3 week old chicks that were supposed to be a pair of marans. Turned out to be two partridge cochin roos-which wasnt all bad cause I have a partridge hen. So I figured Id keep one for sure and go from there. They matured late which I discovered is normal and now i am concerned about my smaller girls. The boys jsut started crowing and mounting the girls- and they are twice the size of the leghorns, and the other two smaller girls. Should i be concerned that they might hurt them when breeding? The black mutt girl and the brahma were pitching a fit when the roo grabbed them. The brahma at least is of similar size and I would imagine can somewhat deal with the weight of the boy- but the smaller girls are dwarfed. I don't NEED to keep the boys- I was kind of excited to possibly hatch some of my own eggs but if its a risk to the girls then the boys will find new homes-stew pot or otherwise. They are nice boys- but if I cant find homes- I don't want to endanger the girls.
