    is there such thing as a good laying bantam that does not go broody too fequently? or is such a nature pounded into these miniature birds genes?. I know this seems very demanding, but i am very curious. [​IMG]

    Standard Hamburgs are pretty close to bantam sized, and they aren't the overly-broody type. They lay pretty well and the eggs are white and medium sized. There are bantie Hamburgs, but I'm not familiar with their laying habits.
