    Hi Everyone,
    I'm just getting started in chickens after not having had any since I was a child. I'm looking for bantams. Can someone tell me which breed of Bantam to get for friendliness and laying?
    Thanks for any suggestion,
    Sheila

    I just loved the old english games and barred rock bantams we had when I was a kid. Eggs are small though.
