    My buff orp hen followed one little bantam rooster all over the yard (Frankie Sinatra was his name). My Mom saw him trying to mate w/her & thought she was being attacked by a small predator till she got a good look & laughed hysterically. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Did the rooster happen to be a Sumatra?

    ETA: Oh yeah bantams can mate with standards.

    I have a mix bantam cochin roo that has no problem in this department. I think he's more determined than the standard roo he shares the pen with.[​IMG]

    I have always had pretty good luck going either way.
