    I have two young male frizzle banty cochins ( only one is crowing, but I think they are both males ). Will they mate with my standard size chickens? If so at what age ? If they can what would their chicks be, banties or standards and would they have a chance to be frizzle? Not sure if I should keep the banty male cochins. Was not planning on having any roosters. New to this Rooster stuff.

    Help. Someone must know. Will the banty cochins roosters mate with my standard hens?

    Usually I get an answer fairly fast. Was this a really dumb question? I would really like to know about these banty cochins roosters.

    Probably not...I have 2 bantam cochin roos and they basically "catch a ride" on the SF girls back. The girls are more than twice their size...just logistically impossible.

    I would say more improbable that impossible. [​IMG]

    my oeg bantam always does his best to mate with the standard hens, but i never know if it "works" if they're the only roos you have wait for them to start fertilizing, or attempting to fertilize the eggs and crack one open and look for a "spot". the chicks would be a medium size. and, i think half should be frizzled.
