    I do not have a rooster but i do have a bantam hen. She is much smaller than the standard hens(White rocks Barred Rocks Road Island Reds) So i Would not put a bantam hen with a standard rooster. Just my 2 cense

    i had a standard cochin roo and he broke the backs on all my little bantie hens. so we gave him away and all of my banties eventually died bc of him. i now have more but without big roos.
