My big BCM roo has two hens currently, a bantam Cochin and a standard Cochin. Every morning when I let him out, he'll crow a few times then go on the mighty Hen Chase. He's sometimes able to grab hold, but usually can't keep his grip on the dashing hen. After a minuet or two of crowing an chasing, he tends to give up and go about foraging. He never crows otherwise...do you think he's getting the job done? If I can convince my banty to go broody I'll see if her eggs are fertile. They looked fertile (little white doohicky in the yolk) when I cracked one. She's not a super layer though, so I usually just toss whatever she's laid to the dogs. Be interesting to see what comes from the crossing of a Partridge Cochin banty and a BCM roo I find it hysterical how every morning he'll puff himself WAAAAY up, do his little crow (he really doesn't have a loud crow) then try to ambush a hen. He should have fun with the tiny little Old English (at least I THINK she's an Old English) Bantam hen. She's smaller than the Cochin and devilishly fast.
