    I have a silkie roo and a showgirl roo. I have some bantam hens and mostly standard hens. I'm hoping they will breed the big chickens as well. Is it possible. I think i would get some cute chickens.

    A banty roo will breed anything he can catch, regardless of size, or try anyway. JMHO [​IMG]

    Yes, your banty roo should breed the showgirls, if they let him. They might have trouble with the larger breeds because of the size difference.
