    So my question is what are "purbread or standard" Americana Bantams like as far as egg laying ability? I knwo easter eggers are good layers but not sure about there smaller "purbread" cousins. Im not looking for market sale quanity but looking for a decent egg laying chicken (preferably bantam for size sake) and like the bluish egg coulor.

    Im most interested in the silver bantam Americana as far as standard coulors are concerned, but I am worried that since there show birds they may not lay many eggs anymore.

    'pure bred'
    'Ameracauna'
    'color'

    To answer the question, I believe the bantam sizes lay as well as the standard. Good luck.
