    Well, he might be carrying a ladder in his pocket! I've got BR hens and RIR roos ... I hatch eggs for sexlinks from them ... but I also have a little red bantam cochin roo .... I also NOW have a whole batch of feather-legged, runt sized sex links running around! That little red cochin beat time with every one of my BR hens! They think he's just sooooo purty!! He now has a run of his own with more appropriate sized girls.​

    We have an OEG bantam and a golden comet for our roos. The lil guy is tops and chases the big roo when he tries to get it on. We have a broody on eggs now and I'm curious to see what they look like and who's the daddy.
