what the smallest bantam that lays well
The only bantams that I've ever owned are old english games.
We actually crossed a black OEG with a leghorn roo once and got some blue hen crosses that were great layers of small to medium eggs.
Sorry I can't be of more help.
my d'uccle lays 4-5 eggs a week.
We have a couple of Serama hens that each lay 3 to 4 eggs a week.
I think RIR bantams lay good.. but im not sure..
SOme people have silkies that lay GREAT while most dont lay alot.
My btw Jap. bantam is an excellent layer. She will lay for around nine days straight then take one day off. When her and my WL hen were first laying we used to laugh and say a little bantam was a better layer then the WL. She was.
cochins are great layers, they lay almost everyday, once the hen is about a year old the eggs are pretty decent size. Also my dutch hen is great too, she rarely skips a day. She is pretty small but the cochins are bigger
Although quail aren't chicken, they do lay bantam sized eggs. They are supposed to be easy to raise and have small space requirements. If you are simply looking to produce lots of bantam sized eggs, you might want to consider quail.
My cochin's lay like golden comet's...lol
