I'm looking for next spring. I want bantams only but don't know much about the different breeds. I have cochins and silkies and D uccles. The cochin and silkies are always broody. So I want to add some bantams that will lay more eggs, hopefully.
What is the best egg laying bantam?

My seramas and bantam EE's lay really well.
ok my husband has just got his book of banams out and it is the pecan laying between 100 and 200 annually or the orpington laying up to 180. silkies lay between 90 and 120.
i own 2 pecan bantams and although jill is not laying yet they are so good especially if you have children cause nothing flusters them and you can tame them really quickly

Now I have an image of a pecan in my head, diligently laying eggs. I know my chickens would just mistake it for another egg. Pekins, though . . . that's interesting. I wonder if that holds true on this side of the water? I never would have thought bantam cochins would be up there.
