My breeding project has 8 hens, all but 1 are LF, with 1 bantam Cochin rooster. He is mature, 1.5 yrs, and has covered the previous owners bantam hens before. I've only seen him cover two of my hens, a BR And bantam sized mix. I am sure he is covering the others, but before I go counting my chicks before they hatch......(har-har)..... Has anyone had success with this sort of pairing? He will eventually be over 4-5 girls, only, to insure nice fertility rates. I'm going to check fertility in my excisting eggs tomorrow, just to see how they look.
