    If there's a will, there's a way. It might take a while but he'll eventually get the job done.

    Why not to the fertilized eggs? You wouldn't be able to tell the difference. [​IMG]

    My wife seems to think there will be a difference. I am not sure because ive never had a roo. she seems to think there will be a blood spot. Is that True?

    That doesn't develop right away. Most of my eggs are fertilized, as long as I grab them daily, I have nothing like that. I've only seen that once or twice in the past year.

    Quote:Its not a problem really! The blood spots are from the females, happening in the duct, no worries! Just pick them out or scramble them up. It won't hurt you.

    That would make for some interesting combinations. [​IMG]

    I seriously doubt the eggs would get fertilized. My d'uccle roo mates my big girls, but the eggs are never fertilized. Watching them, I can see why, as he's always up on their shoulder area when he mounts them (he's about a third their size), even when they're squatting for him. A serama would be even smaller...so I can't see his vent area getting anywhere near a LF's vent area.

    Now imagine the cross, even if you had to do it artificially
