    In your opinion, which breed or breeds of bantam are the best and worst egg layers?

    I have Cochin and d'uccle, they lay really well until they go broody, most bantam do. It's the broody part that keeps them from being spectacular layers. Mine have been giving me consistently 5-7 eggs a day from 9 hens for a few months now. I was wanting them to go broody so of course they keep laying.
