    I'm curious and hope someone can give me some info. I hatched some eggs between a male light Brahma mix and a female grey Brahma bantam. What are the odds they will be bantams?

    Tia!

    My bet is on them being mid sized between the parents when they mature.

    I too agree with sourland. Something inbetween has always been the case for me when crossing a bantam to a larger fowl bird. I'm afraid if you want true bantams both parents will have to be of bantam size.

    No worries! I will love them any way they grow: small, medium, large. Lol

    Thanks for the input!
