    There should be no reason why they couldn't mate.

    Yes they can mate. Ideally you don't want a very large rooster over a very small hen however, due to the fact she could be injured by his weight. A small rooster with a large hen is no problem, but sometimes they aren't successful at fertilizing the eggs.

    Wow I thought they couldn't.
    These pics are from the Internet...I will take original ones and show you :)
    They are the samr size! I don't see them attached to him but as I said I can see him trying to dominate the chickens but in no vain until now except for the little one

    Awesome :)

    Nice. Most likely mostly if not all white chicks with some black spots on them.

    Geat. I think you mean I'll get the Californian edition ..
    I take every day some eggs, so how can I know if they are fertile?
