    I have a rhode island red hen and a bantam roo. Can I incubate their eggs? And of so, will the chicks grow to be big or small? Egg size? Had anyone done this?

    Chicks will most likely be mid sized between the RIR and the bantam, and so will the egg size of any pullets hatched. Whether the eggs will hatch or not depends upon whether or not he is 'making contact' with the big girls.
