    I got chicks that are feather legged and came from bantam cochin eggs but they are just as large as the standard breed chicks the same age, as far as I know the person I got them from does not have any cochin bantam roos so I am assuming it's the standard breed roos that bred them

    Yeah, I have some bantam/large fowl mixes and they are a tad smaller than large size, but definitely not bantam size.
