Banty Roosters crossed with full size hens

Post by Colleen Kinzie » Tue Apr 17, 2018 6:03 pm

Stupid question....... I crossed banty roosters with full sized hens. I noticed some chicks are very round/fat
Others small
Will I get half banty chickens and half full sized chickens or will I get half banty half /full size chickens
Not sure if that is worded right or not. Lol
I was trying to get smaller birds with layer hen genes????
Thanks

As Ross said, you will get all sorts of sizes. If the hens are red sex link, most of the pullets will lay really well, never as good as their mothers, but lots of good sized eggs.

Crap. So I won’t get any medium sized birds out of this lot. I have to wait till the hens are mature and breed them back to banty roosters again! :sAng_banghead: sAng_rantTealc: :gaah: :pull_hair:

That I am Ross. Thanks. And I’m loving your Banty roosters! Not sure I’ll be able to keep 3 though. So now I’ll have to decide which one to part with 😪

Just a word of warning on rooster numbers. Sometimes you are OK with 1 or 3 but not 2.
