    I currently have some oegb, but would like to get some more bantams. Which one would you suggest? Would like to see some pictures if you have some.

    I have Blue Red OEGB and I love them! They are very good layers! I have three broody now, and three other bantams sitting on 10 eggs each of their eggs! Here is a picture of my roo and one of the hens, the color is kinda washed out from the flash! The eggs I get from them always hatch well!!

    i have both and like both very well but i will say the dutch seem much more mild manered and easyer to handle. just my two cents.

    I would never own OEG's. My dutch are wonderful birds and they do not need to be dubbed for show.

    I do not currently own either, but I have Dutch eggs in the incubator. [​IMG] I love the look of both breeds, but the dubbing was an issue for me. If I want to show the Dutch down the road, I don't have to dub. That was the tie-breaker for me.
