    Hello,
    I just wanted to know if the Mille Fluer d'Uccle bantam was a good egg layer. Are they good to eat?

    Thank you,

    CFC

    Oh, do you mean the eggs or the bird? An egg is an egg IMO.

    The only differences in eggs laid by one chicken versus another, regardless of breed are

    1) the colour of the egg
    2) the size of the egg
    3) the diet of the bird that laid the egg

    Egg colour only matters for decorating eggs or being pretty, although some folks have preferences.

    Size only matters in determining how many eggs are needed for a particular recipe (inclubing the number to scramble or fry for breakfast).

    Diet does make a difference nutritionally.
