    I have a "regular" sized roo...2 actually, and one silkie, question is: is she too small for the roos? Will they hurt her while mounting her? I am fairly new to chickens and can rehome her if I need to...
    Thanks!

    I do not like my large fowl to mate with my smaller fowl. Now if the little guy was interested in a big girl.........I would have no problem with it.


    A large roo can easily kill a small bantam - not being mean or anything, just one wrong step and that would be it.


    Maybe she needs a few friends and a boy her own size [​IMG]
