    Sure, a roo can still perform all his roo duties, no matter his size. Whether he can actually fertilize the hens eggs or not is a different story.

    Quote:That would be a wait and see kind of thing. I didn't think my puny turken rooster could fertilize my big ol' brahma hens but I was mistaken; he most definitely can.
