Is a Langshan rooster too big to keep with regular to petite sized hens?

Can I have a Langshan rooster with Araucana, Americauna, etc? Would he hurt them? The Araucana are particuarly petite.

The bigger boys usually leave hens too small to mate alone. Sometimes they don't, but I have never seen a small hen injured from a larger rooster.

I have seen barred rocks mating silkies, so I think you're good if you have all standard birds :)
