    The chicks I hatched last week are now 1 wk old. they are jap bantams.

    I thought it would be interesting to take this picture.

    Large egg is from one of my big girls either a black star, rhode island red, or barred rock.
    compared to a 1 wk old bantam chick and a bantam egg which they came from.

    Adorable. I love the one with the attitude! Funny that the LF egg is bigger than the chick.

    What I find amazing about bantams is when you crack one open the yolk is nearly as big as a large store bought. The eggs look small but my bantam leghorns lay a nice sized egg.

    The eggs taste so good. I prefer the bantam eggs for over easy... thats the way I like mine cooked and i can eat 5-6 of those at one time.
