Next year I want 1 or 2 of my girls to be a mommy. Most definatley Daphne and the other will be random. Daphne is some sort of brahma and RIR cross. And the roos I have is a barred rock, cochin, and nhr. I want the barred rock to breed with her especially, because I would expect a unique color. Would a unique color or pattern come out? Will he breed with her if I left them alone for a few days or no? He doesn't interact a whole lot with them and he sticks around the barred rock hens rather then my mutts and cochins. And the mutts will chase the barred rock hens away when they eat (so the barred rocks eat last) but they don't do anything to the roo. From what I've observed, he normally waits a bit and then slowly starts eating from the feeder and then joins in with the rest of the mutts. Seems like the barred rock hens are really low in the pecking order. He has also tried to mount my blue longhorm cross, but she fought back... So he doesn't try with her anymore. What exactly do I have to do to get him to breed with Daphne? Or will he not? What if I want the cochin to breed with her? Please tell me how to be a breeder!
