    How would the offspring of the largest breed of chicken (Jersey Giant) and the smallest breed (Malaysian Serama Bantam) look like?

    Such a pairing would not be a good idea. A serama hen would/could be hurt mating with such a large rooster. I have doubts that a serama rooster could successfully mate with a hen that much larger. Artificial insemination? I just don't see the point. The results would be unremarkable. Other than size there is not a huge visual difference.

    I agree. I saw a video on YouTube about 2 idiots (excuse my language) trying to breed a Falabella pony with a Shire horse. They literally made the shire stand below a ledge while the Falabella climbed onto the ledge and fell face first trying to mate. You can imagine a scene like this with those breeds.
