BANTAM Differences between Rhode Island Red, and Brama or ? for good egg laying

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have been looking into getting a few bantam hens for egg laying.  They must be very cold hardy too.  The last of our flock was killed off by weasels this winter, : (   so I will be starting new with chicks again.  In a more secure chicken house!    I think I am down to Rhode Island Red or maybe Brama's .  Looking for great egg layers that will not go broody or quit laying for long periods.  It looks like the Rhode Island reds are the best layers from what I have read so far.   What have you found from your experiences.  We had a couple of salmon favorelle hens for years too.  They did lay pretty good, but would take stretched off of laying too as they got older.

I'd go with the Rhode island red

 I have two amercaunas, two wellsummers , two lakenvelders ,a silver laced cochin, a golden laced cochin, a buff  brahma , a jersey giant, a cream brabranter, and a buff orphinton.   And yes the chicken in the picture is mine.
