    Does this sound good?

    3 large 4 med, under bigger one?
    And 1 med 9 small eggs?

    Note:
    Large eggs: whyndottes
    Small eggs: silkies
    Med eggs : houdan

    Ps: thanks in time

    I would limit at 4-6 standard sized eggs and 7-10 bantam eggs, depending upon size. A Silkie or Cochin bantam would be able to handle the upper end of that scale, whereas a smaller bird like a D'Uccle or especially OEGB wouldn't be able to handle so many.
