    We have a friend who has Black Australorp hens, and she wants two roosters for mating. We have two silver polish roosters that we need to get rid of, also two Auracanas. However, it seems like I've read that sometimes regular breeds won't mate with cresteds...anyone know this to be true?

    I know my silkies will mate with my Polish rooster in a heartbeat.

    Thanks BK. What about all those others you have? Will they "party" with your polish? (Excluding the cats and kittens and boxer.[​IMG])
