    I was wondering what the difference in size between OEG and Dutch bantam hens was?
    Thanks--PWF

    about an ounce or two. The size could vary more from where you get the birds than from what the standard is for each breed IMO [​IMG]

    Weight-wise... one or two ounces... inch wise, they're pretty much the same. Dutch tend to be bigger actually, at least most of them do. It's the feathers, they're really fluffy, makes em look bigger than they actually are.
