so if he is a standard rooster, will that work with a flock of bantam hens or should I take him back and get a bantam rooster? I have discovered chicken mating is quite disturbing to me because it looks as though he is beating them up. My husband said, "What...do you want him to light a candle?" He just started trying to mate with the cochins that we brought home on Friday and started crowing about the same time. I just don't want him to hurt the bantams. The other problem is that my daughters raised him and love him dearly. They are so afraid that he is going to have to go. Is it possible to keep him or would that be bad for the flock?
