    I just recently purchased a three month old Silver Campine Bantam hen and rooster pair and I was just wondering when they would start laying, I am not sure if they already have being that it is still my first day with them, I am also wondering how often the lay and how big their eggs are. (remember, their bantam)

    ++also, Can they hatch their own eggs?

    We have a couple of Silver Campine hens, never heard of a bantam, ours are just the regular small Campines.
    Ours started laying at around 5 months old and lay a medium sized white egg. We have averaged about 6 eggs per week per hen, so great layers and very good foragers.

    Maybe someone else can help with bantam specific info.
