    Can anyone tell me if my new hen is laying early (she's only about 4 months old), one of my EE is laying tiny eggs (although they also lay their normal eggs today), or do I perhaps one of the many wild birds that likes to eat their feed is laying in my laying box? For what it's worth, my new hen should be laying brown eggs.

    I would lean toward a dud EE egg. Although my sexlinks seem to lay those kind more often than my EE.
