    So what does everyone do with itty-bitty bantam eggs? Make itty-bitty omlets?

    They would be SO cool as hors'd oeuvre hard boiled bite-sized eggs. Lol.

    My bantam eggs aren't really that much smaller...they still work well for cooking. The one exception are my bantam OEGB girls...their eggs are about the size of a quail egg! I crack those and let the chickens eat them.

    Scrambled, over easy etc. They taste great just have to use more of them. If you serve hors'doeuvres then yep they would be cool LOL

    We have 5 banty girls. I usually hard boil their eggs for salads or to pack in lunches. I actually have a customer who pays me $8 to make little deviled eggs. That's for a dozen eggs = to 24 little deviled eggs. Very time consuming, but definitely a party hit! [​IMG]

    Pickled. For two reasons. First they're ready to eat sooner, and second they're the perfect size for a quick snack.

    I just use them for eating as I would with any larger egg. Scrambled, fried, omlet, hard boiled...
    The only thing I am unsure of is for baking, where it specifies a large egg...I would probably put 2 banty eggs in it's place.
