    Dear All,
    Do any of you know whether Bantams usually lay in winter and how old they have to be to start laying?
    Kind regards,

    My bantams started to lay eggs when they were 6 months old and others when they were 7-8 months old [​IMG]

    Thank you very much! Our Bantams laid their first eggs a couple of days ago and we weren't sure whether this was normal. A great help!
