    I have 2 OEGB hens and my only "small" rooster is a bantam Cochin.

    Do you think he will be okay to breed to these hens? Has anyone bred bigger to smaller? I just don't know if he will smash my hens.

    It will be fine. He's not too big to really harm them. If he were a standard sized Cochin, then there would be serious concern.
