    I know there is a difference between how much they eat but by how much? I know my 20 standards go through a 50lb bag of layers in a week, how quickly do you think 10 batams would go through a 50lb bag? also is layers pellets alright for them once they hit laying age or do I need to feed them something different?

    10 bantams will go through a bag of layer in about 19 - 21 days. Standard layer is fine for mature bantams.
