When will my bantams start laying ? UPDATED !!!!!!

Recommended Posts

As you know I bought 2 bantams from Jimmy's at Easter :D:D


We were told they were about 8 - 10 weeks old so they must be about 19 -21 weeks old now.


Do Banties start laying later than big girls :?::?: Do they lay as regularly as big girls :?::?:


I keep looking in the nest box and I have had a chat with them to ask if they could possibly lay me a little egg and explained that just because their big chookie friend Annie dosen't lay eggs it doesn't mean they can't lay eggs :roll::roll:

It depends more on the breed really. You'll know when they're getting ready because they'll redden up and start chucking the bedding everywhere.


Most of mine have started at between 5 and 6 months, but it depends on the time of year - so you should be in for some eggs soon!

Woo Hoo :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:


There was a little bantie egg in the eglu yesterday evening. I'm not sure who laid it but I think it may have been Millie. She was squawking yesterday afternoon but as I was running late for parent's evening so I only glanced out to make sure she was OK.


It weighs 26g................tiny compared to my big girls eggs :D:D:D:D
