    if they mate it would be a crossbreed, not a new breed. It takes years to create a new breed, and then you could apply to the APA to have it recognized.

    Pekin as in duck? Highly doubtful that a duck can cross with a chicken, different species with a different amount of chromosomes. That said, bantam roosters successfully mate large fowl hens all the time, so size doesn't matter too much.
