    What would I get if I crossed an OEGB with a standard Cochin? Is it even possible to mate a bantam roo with a standard cochin? Could he even reach her to mate?

    I dont think they could mate naturally. You would probably have to artificially inseminate them.

    Oh it can be done!! I have a dutch roo and a standard cochin hen. Only about half her eggs were fertile, but they did hatch! How he managed, I will never know!!

    The little blue chick in the front is one of hers, I believe. There is one on the left that is blue, who is also surrounded by black/darker chicks!

    I have a tiny silkie who is second in command in the flock....he waits till the giant cochin gets off a large hen and then he jumps up while she is still in a lowered position. They find a way [​IMG]

    Quote:Hee hee...I don't know that I would, I just have only one roo (OEGB) and a few cochins, so was combining them in my head...then I got to wondering what they would look like - if he could even get to them. He's a sweetie, so at this point I'm not even sure he would go for it - can you say 'whimpy whimpy whimpy' real fast? LOL! [​IMG]
