    Has anyone had any experience with crossing these two breeds? We have 4 Australorps 3 black and 1 Splash and a what I am told is a Pekin Bantam Roo, Buff coloured. The pullets only started laying two days ago so won't attempt to hatch eggs yet as they are still small but I did see a mating today. Wondering what size chicks might be? Thx.

    Chicks would be of medium size. Larger than the bantam cochin (Pekin) , but smaller than the austalorp.
