My bantam SS went broody again and I am wanting to hatch out some orpingtons. I have one buff hen, and I put her in a pen with my lavender rooster. I'm not sure if he has ever mated with her; He tries, but she runs to the porch and hops up. (He has deformed toes and so he can't follow.) I put them in a small pen together tonight, hoping that he'll mate with her now that she can't run way. He did show interest, but didn't try and mate. Is it safe to assume that he will have mated with her by morning and she'll lay fertile eggs?
