I had a friend pick up a drake to pair up with the pekin hen that we got off of Craigslist. He seems huge next to her and when I caught him trying to breed with her he squashed her flat, there was a lot of feather pulling and wiggling around, but I'm not sure the deed got done. Is he too big to breed with her, or will they work it out? How long is the breeding season for pekins? She has laid about eight eggs since I've had her a friend told me he thought she would be done laying before he could fertilize them. Is this true? How long before the eggs are fertile if he can breed her? I know chickens, but pekins are new to me.
