    Okay I have three Dark Cornish Bantam Chicks One rooster and two females. Can they mate or are they too heavy like Ive seen said in some websites? Now also I have one Black Australorp ( hen) chick will he try to mate with her??? Cause if he's going to try then I suppose I need to keep him seperate from the hens, cause right now I just want eggs and maybe in two years I'll let him breed if they do???

    Plus I have six more hens on the way, different breeds three more Black Australorps and three Bantam Silkies all hens..

    not sure, but seeing is that are cornish, check on the link for meat chickens and ask them...they will probably have more insight. I am not curious about that myself.

    The male might have a hard time breeding if he is too big or short. It depends on the birds. He would be fine with the other hens.
