Will bantams and full-sized chickens crossbreed if the flocks can intermingle?

    If a flock of bantams and a flock of Barred Plymouth Rocks are kept together or free-range together, will they tend to breed within their own size, or will they crossbreed?

    I've asked this question about my seramas and full sized roosters and been told they'll breed. I've also seen them doing it...

    Never hatched an egg to try it out, though.
