    Do any bantam breeds lay as much as standard breeds?

    I have all Bantams, and my Brahmas and my EE are probably my best/most consistent egg layers.

    How many months a year do they lay (approx?)? I really like bantams but I'm under the impression that they only lay for a few months a year. I have a flock of 30+ with only a few true bantams and I would like to add more but I feed so much already I want to know I'm getting sum'm back if I get some more bantams.

    Our Bantam Cochin are laying in tune with most of the others, except the Comets. They did take about a 3 month break after molt through December, but mostly an egg a day now.
