    Yes, it's possible for a bantam cock to service standard size hens. He will probably not be very successful in most or possibly even all of the attempts but I've seen quite a few offspring from the bantam/standard crosses.

    Yep, like ChickenWisperer said, it is possible but he may not be very sucessful. But it it hilarious watching a bantam roo jump on a large fowl hen and she takes off running riding him on her back.
