In the Brooder
- Sep 20, 2013
I have Americana Hens and Cinnomen Queens and I have a Bantam Rooster. I also Have a little bantam Hen that went Broody, So she hatched out five of the eight eggs, and these babies are 2 mths old now but I wanted to know if breeding chickens is like breeding dogs, If I am using a Bantam Rooster with Those hens which are Reg sz, then will they be mixed breeds or does anyone know if they will be Bantam sz or reg or is this all up in the air, I have been told that the Rooster doesnt matter. However that doesnt make since to me so I am just wondering as far a genetics what role does the rooster play. Also I have been told only the baby chicks which are Rooster will have the Dads genes?
