    Well I had an active Serama roo mating my big hens (FUNNY let me tell ya!) And I tried to hatch out some of the eggs. I DID get one to hatch and it was so cute...A little bigger then a bantam. Then the neighbors dog killed her! [​IMG] It can be done but not sure what you would call it. Mediums maybe?? LOL [​IMG] Thats what my hen was...inbetween.

    I had a japanese banty who loved my big BO hens. The chicks they hatched were "in betweeners". Not bantys but not large fowl. I did have one teeney tiny hen but most were medium sized birds.

    my sussex tries many times a day to "get" my banty, but her eggs are not fertile. I started incubating them, but they did nothing. the more i thought about it, though, i don't know what would happen - a half full sized chicken, half banty growing in a banty egg.

    regardless, despite many tries, my large fowl is not able to get my banty. HE finishes, but to no avail
