Can My Rooster mate with an easter egger ,Black star, or cornish hem
The restrictions would be if roo was to short to reach. To put things into perspective, would a chihuahua have difficulty mating with a Great dane. You will end up with chickens all mixed and as I refer to " mutts " But that is not a bad situation except if you wanted to enter shows. You may end up with some one of a kind beauties that will be good to you. BEST WISHES
Bantam rooster can mate with standard sized hens, although depending on the specific breeds and how big they are, it can be quite challenging for them. As cavemanrich said, the offspring will simply be barnyard mutts.
mine arent for shows just for teaching people about chickens
You must keep in mind that the opposite situation, when a standard size rooster mates white bantam hen it can produce an embryo that is to big for a bantam size egg and it can die inside!
its a bantam Rooster not hen my hens are not bantoms
My bantam Cochin mates fine with my standard hens. It really depends on the individual rooster but I find even the really tiny guys can pull off fertilization much to my surprise!
