    I am having alot of trouble finding standard size true rumpless tufted araucanas , however I can get bantams .so my question is if i breed a standard size rumpless tufted roo with a bantam rumpless hen will i get any standard sized birds.

    Most likely you'd get something in between a bantam and standard bird.

    If you breed a bantam to a standard, you will get a bird that is not quite a bantam but not quite a standard. You could always breed the offspring back to the standard parent, to result in a more standard sized bird.
