    Okay, I have those three breeds as bantam but they really are big for bantam.
    I would like to know how I can downsize them through breeding with true bantam breeds,
    Ex. I have Standard bantam Sumatra roo with old english game bantam hen.
    They breed and have offspring. The babies will have longer tails than mom and shorter than dad.

    From there, I Want to keep getting longer tails but also shorter size.

    Same for Silkies and polish, how do I go from the first hatch?

    It will be a lot quicker and a lot cheaper to get rid of what you have and start with quality birds.
