Should I let these hatch out or take them from the nest?

I've got two broody dutch bantam hens sitting on two clutches of eggs and along with their own eggs, they're also sitting on some eggs from the standard size chickens (EE's and black stars). The only rooster I've got is a Dutch bantam so he's obviously been breeding with the larger females as well as the banty hens. My question is this, Is it okay for banty and standard size birds to "intermingle" or would the chicks resulting from this be abnormal? Should I take the big eggs out? If it is okay, what size will the mixed chicks be? inbetween? I can't imagine what they'd look like! Whose coloring would they have? Maybe little picasso birds?
