    I would love to raise some bantams but all the info I can gather doesn't list any as good layers. Does anyone know of a breed of bantam that produces a decent quantity of eggs?

    I hatched out some Easter Egger bantams that are laying machines and they are the cutest little birds. I had a bantam Ameraucana rooster and hatched out some eggs he fertilized from my OE bantam cross. The resulting hens are EEs that lay tiny blue eggs everyday since they started laying. And they started laying right at 6 months. I let the rooster go because he was such a little jerk but now I am kicking myself for letting him go considering how rare it was to find one locally where I live.
