    I have just ordinary Easter Egg Bantams from Purely Poultry that lay blue eggs...

    Are you looking for a purebred breed like the Ameraucanas?

    Large Fowl Araucana also lay blue eggs. I would say half of my flock lay nice blue eggs the other half lay blue green eggs. It is not a breed for those looking for something easy.

    True, but the question asked was which bantam breeds lay blue eggs. I was guessing that the OP didn't realize that both araucanas and ameraucanas come in bantams as well as largefowl.
