    Hi everyone,

    I have a beautiful rooster, standard size Maran EE mix and one of my hen is broody. I would like to use some of my own eggs to put under her and was wondering how would the chicks from my milles fleurs hen would look like? I also have a cochin milles fleurs? and a golden sebright? any body could tell me how a standard rooster and a bantam hen baby would look like?

    Post pictures please...

    I would be afraid that none of them would hatch. If it were reversed and the hen was LF and the roo bantam, I wouldn't see a problem, but fitting a LF sized chick into a bantam sized egg, I don't think would turn out very well. I know how small my MFD eggs are and there is no way a LF cross would ever hatch out of one.
