Bantams will require less feed and space in a coop. However, they're eggs will be smaller.

My EE is not a whole lot bigger than my bantams, and the eggs are much bigger. If you have the room I would get the regular size. If room is an issue, than get the bantams. You will love them, they are really nice birds and lay very cool eggs! smile.png

I'm sure the bantams eggs would be smaller....... smaller bird, smaller egg....
