    I posted a topic in the egg section - I have a Silver Seabright roo. All my hens, except for my Mille, are standard size. Can he 'service' hens bigger than him? I thought since i had a roo my eggs are most likely fertile, but after watching him do his 'thing' I'm starting to question it!

    Has anyone sucessfully hatched banty-cross eggs?>?

    if a rooster can jump hens.he can service them.since the hens are bigger may take him a while to figure it out.

    My OEGB tries, but he's too small do do anything, really. He ends up on their backs, but only for a short ride. He's too small to reach the important parts.[​IMG]
