I'm new at this posting ???'s, hope I am doing it right!! My ? is this... I have 9 chickens, my original 5 hens that are a year and a half old. I had a big mean rooster but he had to go, but before he did my freind and I incubated some eggs. We are sure that 3 of the chicks are his babies, we bought some as well. I got 4 chicks to add to my flock, as they grew I could tell that 2 were bantam hens and 2 were from my eggs, 1 hen and 1 rooster. So now I have 8 hens and 1 rooster who is very nice so far and looks just like his papa. I am trying to get 3 more hens so I will have enuff hens for him. I am curious if this is okay... can he mate with the banties? Will he hurt them? Can he mate with his mother and his half sister? Any help will be appreciated.
