Can an Old English Bantam roo breed a standard breed hen such as Sussex or Orp? Thanks!
anything is possible but he might have some logistical issues. it won't be for lack of trying.
He's have no problem working out the logistics; just might look a bit funny.
Our Silkie roo used to jump on the Buff Orpingtons from the ramp to the nesting area. Their eggs were fertilized but not viable.
I was never able to get the EE x silkie eggs to hatch, either. They'd fail about 1/3-2/3 of the way through incubation. The BO eggs wouldn't even start beyond blood vessels.
I had one several years ago. She hatched from a LF egg, but was in between a OEG and LF. Right now I have 5 cochin X BA babies and they all hatched no problem. Shouldn't be any issues. You may have to trim the girls vent feathers back since he is smaller and may have a harder time reaching them.
