    Depends on the breed of the hen, and the genetic charateristics of that breed.

    Um...the average rooster tends to be interested in anything with feathers...

    They are a pretty ambitious and energetic species when it comes to finding and mating anything that doesn't get away.

    The hen determines the size of the egg, too, so that shouldn't be a problem.
