Thanks for the input. We almost save a couple of hens, but I didn't know if they would lay eggs. I was worried about the size difference until my Aunt told me about her very LARGE Cochin roo was out with her little game bird hen. I had no idea that could happen. She said she has seen it a few times and she isn't harmed at all. Chunk is probably 9 lbs right now and my hens are about 7. I do hope it works out.
