    Yes it could but why would you want to? If its for projects, then artificial insemination is the way to go. Otherwise, that big roo will either severely hurt or kill that bantam hen :( A bantam roo can mate a large fowl hen without many issues. It's awfully funny- but its serious the other way around.

    they are bigger now and the cockerels look like little marans
