    Welcome to BYC. Bantams would lay small eggs, the others I don't know about. However, chickens are easily stressed by moving. This can put them off from laying until they feel secure in their new surroundings. Eggs you got so far may have already been in development before you got them - so they seemed to lay soon. I'm sure they will start laying in earnest when they fully adapt to your coop, etc.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    I haven't kept any of the breeds that you have, so don't know how much they lay each day. I hope you can find the answers you need![​IMG]
