    I had bantam polish and they laied bantam sized eggs... maybe they were talking about bantam polish? I didn't find this breed to be very hardy though.

    We have some standard size buff laced polish. They lay medium sized eggs, and last year one of the hens went broody and hatched out 2 chicks. This breed is not known for being broody mothers, but one of ours wasn't aware of that. They are going on 3 years old and have had no problems with their hardiness. They do tend to suffer from the heat of summertime more than our other birds, with all that feathery mess on their heads, but are very docile chickens that are fun to have around the farm. I would warn that these are not good free range chickens. They can freerange, but their blocked view of the world due to their topknots makes them easy prey for roaming predators. If you were close by I'd supply ya with some eggs to try out. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.
