Best laying bantams

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

What is the best breed of bantams for laying. I like the size and the docile-ness of the bantams. Any help would be awesome!

Leghorns.  I have white and light brown. The white ones I have are very docile, the lt brown ones are spazzes. But they lay summer and winter, and in enclosed spaces. They lay average sized eggs.

I dont have any experience with these breeds but  possibly RIRs, Salmon Favorelles, Barred Rocks.

I had some Orpingtons who lay larger eggs but not quite as often, and winter time wasnt good.

I heard Favorelles lay in the winter.

I also heard that Dorkings are good for the winter laying.

What about dominiques? Seems they would lay well in the winter because of their historic heartiness. I've got some in my bator, so I guess I'll see for next year!

This is an excellent breed for hardiness and egg laying.
