    Not that I'm trying I was just curious. Can a standard you successfully breed with a bantam hen?

    They can and will. However, it's not generally a safe thing for the bantam hen. Too large of a rooster can accidentally kill her.

    My friend has her Bantam hens and Rooster living in the same coop with her standard hens and Rooster...Her standard does not bother with the Bantam hens at all..They are way to quick for him..She has higher roosts that the Bantams use and hiding spots that only the Bantams can hide in....Not that all people have her success...

    Cheers!
