    Good evening, Does anyone have bantams soley for thier egg laying? I Ordered a book today, that is called "bantams As Layers" that is supose to be about creating a strain of egg laying bantams. I assume it will tell me what breeds are good layers, but I can't help be wonder what breeds you keep for egg layers, and how well do they lay?

    I have bantam naked necks, they are some of the best if not the best bantam egg layers I have ever owned.

    I get an egg a day from these N-Necks with little to no breaks in between. LAYS AS MANY EGGS AS A LF LEGHORN. [​IMG]

    My bantam cochins and silkie lay fine, when they're not broody. But the eggs are very small, less than USDA peewee size.
