Handle a standard rooster's mount and be able to produce a fertile egg?
Oh I think the eggs would be fertile but I wouldn't allow them to mate with a bantam hen. There have been bantam hens killed by standard roos In fact my large hens prefer the bantam roo for mating rather then the standard roos. Thos big roos can be mean and rough.
Take this theory with a grain of salt - as I am no expert in hatching... But... I would think you may not have a very good success rate when it comes to hatching because the bigger chicks might be squashed in the tiny eggs. Whereas, a bantam roo to a standard hen would not cause the same issue. Again, just my own thoughts - not from any particular experience.
Thanks to all your thoughts. I will strongly trading the bantam for a standard.
