    I was wondering about how long bantam eggs are. My game eggs are around 2 inches from end to end. I thought little pickled banty eggs would be fun!

    My Silkies eggs were about the third of the size of a large egg. So nine would make breakfast for three people.[​IMG]

    Some banty breeds might lay smaller than others, but here's a pic of my Dutch bantam eggs vs a standard size large egg. If you want a small egg to pickle, try button quail or maybe other quail varieties. I have lots of recipes!!
