    If i get bantams, are the eggs too small to cook? will we have to buy are own eggs? cuz we're only getting four.

    I eat my bantams eggs, they are small but still very tasty. I have 5 hens and they lay alot of eggs.

    I believe it takes 3 banty eggs to make 2 big chickens eggs. You can eat and cook with them just like regular eggs. You just need more of them.

    I have 3 banty Frizzles. And of the 2 hens, we get 2 eggs a dat right now. My grandson LOVES getting his " own eggs". For Easter...I even deviled a few....they looked soooo cute sitting there next to the bigger ones, and he was so excited to have his OWN deviled eggs!
