    I am looking for some info- maybe to buy. I am looking for infertile eggs to make into ceramic eggs (or to be covered with polymer clay like in one of the hobby threads but I need to find out what chicken lays the size I need. they must be 1 1/2" up to 2" in length but no bigger. are bantam eggs bigger then this?
    anyone that can help me out is greatly appreciated.
