So I've been looking for some egg laying bantams (currently have two, RIR and Barred Rock. They lay on alternating days so I get an egg every day.) for almost 3 months. All I've been able to find are silkies, silkies, and more silkies. And when I ask people who raise chickens in general, I always get the, "You're stupid if you think you're going to get eggs from bantams. They only lay about 50 eggs a year." I've had my two girls for about 4 months and have gotten more than 50 eggs from the RIR already.... I live in Raleigh, North Carolina. If anyone knows anything about any bantam breeders or chicken farms that may have bantams or ANYTHING, I would really appreciate a heads up. Cause this search is getting FRUSTRATING. You can either just reply here or send me an email. [email protected] Oh btw, the Barred Rock just started laying last week. I was so excited!
