    i reconized the signs this morning, my black cochin bantam "fajita" is going to lay! her comb has gotten bigger, her hips wider, she is more vocal (dont know if that has to do with anything), she squats when i approach her (not to take a poo!). i really hope she lays! she is about 4 1/2 months.

    how small do you think a pullet egg from a bantam will be?

    gosh, I can't imagine. Miss Prissy's egg was about the size of a golf ball, and she's a standard NHR. The little bitty thing looks so funny in the egg carton I have -- it's for 1.5 doz jumbo eggs! [​IMG] Sure hope they get bigger!

    As soon as I figure out how, I'll post a pic.
