    My standard rooster Is a birchen dutch OEG and my bantam hen Is a Black breasted red OEG, but the rooster free ranges with 2 other ones & the hens are in a coop theres 6, but there are 3 in one coop and 3 in the other, and the roosters hang around there coops, they seemed be in love lol, Please help me I dnt the roos to hurt hens tho, (I had a bantam rooster, but he was killed by wild dogs few months ago) and we got these standards roos for free they are all pure game except im not 100% on one of the roos tho, but hens are diffently 100% pure OEG.!!

    Thanks!!:)

    I think that she'd be hurt by such a large rooster mounting her. Better safe than sorry.
