    Could the one in the middle be a pullet egg? I have four grown hens but their eggs are usually the same size as the outer eggs....I thought about segregating them to find out...

    Seems likely to be a pullet egg.

    I'm sure that is the pullet's egg.

    My leghorn gal just laid her first egg yesterday. You got a pullet egg. It's so awesome to see how much bigger they'll get!

    The three brown eggs can not be white leghorn eggs, the color is wrong.

    Eggs are graded from pewee, to small, medium, large, extra large, and jumbo.

    A white leghorn pullet will usually begin laying either a small of medium egg, but always one with a white shell then progress on to large eggs but seldom on to extra large eggs.

    If the smaller white shelled egg in the photo weighs 1.75 ounces that makes it a medium egg and that means that it is almost sure to be a pullet egg everything else taken into consideration.
