    I purchased a few chicks in the spring time (10... just a few right?! lol) well out of all of them 1 I am pretty positive is a roo. I integrated my new girls (possibly one boy) in with my lonely frizzle serama sophia (who lost her sister around a short time after we got the chicks) I wanted them to establish a pecking order before they all grew much bigger then she was. She is a dominate little lady that holds her own, She's tiny as can be but will stand up to my astrolorpe like she is just as big! haha[​IMG]
    Anyways... POINT of my post. Is it possible to mate the GLW roo with my frizzle serama hen?[​IMG] I don't want her to get hurt but i read roo's can start attempting to mate when they are only about 15 weeks old give or take.. talk to me about this process... and if it's even a possibility. I'd love to breed her because she is beautiful and sweet and she has great genes but we don't have a roo right now (except for the possibility of carmella being a "carl") and city limits really deter us from having a roo but if i could possible mate them before having to rehome him that would be amazing... I think they'd make beautiful babies... frizzle chicks!!! be still my heart![​IMG]

    A large fowl rooster attempting to mate a Serama hen is a recipe for disaster.

    More likely a little chicken pancake. Why not obtain an OEGB rooster to mate with her?

    Or another Serama? Japanese bantams are small little birds too, they'd make a great match for a tiny Serama.
