if she is a bantam than she will be much smaller than a large fowl, and therefor will lay smaller eggs
Thank you for the great reply, would not like thinking the young man raising these hens would intentionally lie to me. Usually chicken folks are great at helping one another, PhilI have some barnyard mixes (four) that started laying @ sixteen weeks. These were similar to yours (only one has a jaunty little CCL comb). Very nice little black hens. Not bantams but not huge. One green, one blue, one gray, one tan layer. All the pullets lay these adorable babydoll eggs at first; sometimes for a couple of weeks.
The diminutive combs are dominant, so neither you nor (possibly) the seller would necessarily know if there was mixed blood there. Do Wyandottes come in black? IDK. They do come in a lot of colors. My gen pop hens (at least some of them) have gotten larger even after starting to lay. She doesn't necessarily have to be a banty. I'll bet she's a mix though, to lay so early.
