I have a mixed flock of 25 of various breeds of standards (one roo) and a roo BEGC-black, and two golden Seabright bantam hens, a white wynndote bantam hen and one what i beleive to be a porclin D'unclle. Any way--the standards have been laying for well over a month--they all came on March 1st as dayolds. the Bantams came on April 1: yet no eggs for any of them yet! So not only am I going to ask again-(even though I think I know the answer) how long before they start to lay? and the second thing i can not wait to find out is: will they be as productve (but just smaller) as my other standards? I have researched on this site and see a range of all kinds of answers to that one--what do you say about Bantams laying? I enjoy the bantams for some reason and would like to justify getting more in the spring!
