    He's so tiny but does a good job chubby-chasing those big girls... :)

    Just wondering if he could "mechanically" deliver the stuff to the right "place"

    Go "Baby" Rooster!

    :)

    It’s possible but with the Dutch Bantam being on the smaller side and the Light Brahma being on the larger side it’s unlikely. You can try artificial insemination if things don’t work out.

    Thanks guys! I knocked up a "big girl" twice myself so go 'Baby rooster' :)

    j/k... but kinda like this flock setup, seems to be working good pecking order wise. Just worried about my lil' bantam Rhode Red (?)... she's super skiddish... lowest on the totem pole but but gets her way. But for some reasons she's super scared of us... she freaks out the second she's isolated.

    Small flock, they're more like pets to us than anything.... "don't name 'em if you're gonna eat them" they say lolol.. too late.
