    the edge of insanity
    a bantam rooster (d'uccles) x full sized Easter Egger hen?

    COULD the resulting hatchling be a bantam?
    These two were hatched together. The one on the right (EE) was the first to hatch and the welsummer chick on the left was hatched within 24 hours of the EE. The giver of the green egg has a full sized EE/barnyard mix rooster with feathered feet, so there were two possibilities.. him or the little bantam game rooster. (I think d'uccles.)

    When I was a kid my rooster was a (Standard) Dark Cornish x Porcelain (Bantam) and my roo turned out to be black and bantam sized. If that helps in anyway. [​IMG]
