We are looking after next door's bantams while they are away, so I have about 6 bantam eggs. Is there an easy conversion when using them in cooking in place of hens eggs? If I use 3 bantam eggs in a cake recipie that says 2 eggs, is that about right??

I kept a few bantams a number of years ago - iirc the yolks were the same size as "normal" eggs, but the whites were smaller in volume. I don't bake (or at any rate, neither well nor often) so I don't know what this means for you.

Thanks OLKN. Yes, it did look like that when I cracked them. I made the cake anyway, with 3 bantams eggs in place of 2 hens eggs, and it was very tasty - yummm.
