He is mating our bantie...He is a large bird. Is that ok?
Here is a pic of the Rooster...
&& one of the bantam hen
From the pics it doesn't look like there is enough size difference to be a problem, though it is hard to tell. He may even be able to accomplish fertilization. A huge roo mating a small hen can injure the hen.
They say size matters, but generally not to a roo.
If he starts to cause feather damage or scratching you will need to separate him from the bantams or get poultry saddles.
