    Bantams will require less feed and space in a coop. However, they're eggs will be smaller.

    My EE is not a whole lot bigger than my bantams, and the eggs are much bigger. If you have the room I would get the regular size. If room is an issue, than get the bantams. You will love them, they are really nice birds and lay very cool eggs! [​IMG]

    I'm sure the bantams eggs would be smaller....... smaller bird, smaller egg....
