    Hi All,
    I have 2 RIR Bantam pullets without bantam male.
    I can get high quality LF RIR roo.
    can I cross them ? what will be the result ?

    thanks
    Itay

    I would think a LF RIR roo would be too big for the bantam hens and might hurt them, but I'm no expert.

    Injured bantams. Think logically- 9+ pound rooster mating a fine boned bantam hen?
