    I was wondering if you can mix most any bantam breeds with standard size or just some and or none. Thanks.

    You can absolutely mix bantams and standards. I know many people who seem to fear their little bantams will be killed by standard sized birds. In my flock I have kept anything from itty bitty japanese bantams, to jersey giants and 90% of the time the banties are the ones in charge. It doesnt matter the breeds, usually bantams have speed and agility on their side, so they can get away from the bigger birds if they are causing them trouble.
