    Hello and Happy New Year!!!!
    We were sitting here thinking about what chickens to order this spring, isn't everyone, lol? I was really wanting some bantams for the little eggs for the kids. I noticed in the hatchery catalogue that all the bantams are listed as fair to poor layers but I have heard people here on BYC say they lay great. Which breeds of bantams lay well? I have to admit I'd love itty bitty blue eggs!!!
    Have a wonderful evening and a blessed New Year!!

    I think EE bantams or Bearded Antwerp Belgian Bantams. They are both very friendly and the EE lay colored eggs!

    My Mille Fleur lays about 5 eggs every week. [​IMG] Of course the eggs are small and cream colored.
