I believe pip-squeak is a Brahma he’s quite small and prolly weighs a few pounds. He’s very small compared to the hens and is often picked on. Will he be able to mate? I’ve seen him hop on their backs and they roll him off quickly? Will he be okay/healthy if he’s unable to mate?

He's a beautiful rooster but not a Brahma.. To answer your question, yes he should be able to mate with the hens. I had a bantam rooster for years and he produced a lot of chicks with full size hens. Once in a while the hens would just shrug him off but he still managed to breed a lot of them! :wee:yesss:
