    I want to get a pari of bantams, cause their extra cute and fluffy :p and apparently come with alot of personality.

    BUT I hear they dont lay as well.

    So what breed of bantams do you find to be the best layer? How many a week? And how big are the eggs compared to the big girls?

    I Love bantams and over they years i have kept loads. I found pekins were good layers but be warned - bantams tend to go broody much more often than standard hens and I think they are much harder to break from being broody.
