    My little mille fleur d'uccle cross roo bred my JBG hen just fine. She's 3 times his size! I have a one week old chick from them. I put 4 of her eggs under a broody to see if they were fertile and one hatched, the others quit at various stages. Black chick with feathered feet. Can't wait to see what it turns into!

    No problem for a motivated roo! Seems the banties aren't aware of their size difference. If she lets him, all will be good, no problems with hatching those eggs. Would be interesting to see the babies!
