    hi , please guide me .
    i've 1 white cochin rooster , 1 buff (golden cochin ) rooster , 1 buff hen , 1 black cochin hen AND 1 white ameraucana hen .
    i've grown them together and now they are of the age of around 6 months .
    white cochin rooster has started sexual activities with all 3 hen including white ameraucana hen .
    WILL it affect the buff and black cochin hen eggs regarding any kind of mixing to next generation chicks as they are not in proper pair ?
    what white ameraucana hen will produce ?
    only buff hen has started laying eggs .
    buff rooster is still growing .

    [​IMG] Eventually you will probably need to remove one rooster from your flock. Two large roosters breeding the hens will result in 'wear and tear' on their feathers. Any chicks hatched from the cochin eggs will be purebred, but may be non standard colors. Any chicks hatched from the ameraucana eggs may very well lay olive colored eggs.
