    Ok so my question is: Are standard Americana bantams considered to be a good egg laying group of birds (I knwo bantams lay less than full sized fowl generaly) or are they pretty much only usful for there show qualities?

    Im interested in the Blue egg coulour and love the idea of "purbead" poultry generaly (or at least breeding to type) but not at the expense of there potential production qualities.
