We have 26 total birds in our coop.
4 white Columbians, black sex links, Plymouth Barr and silkies (not sure if they are hens yet) 2 Murdoch ducks and 2 Americana.
None of these birds are older than 16 weeks. I have 5 older hens that lay big eggs 2 brown and 3 blue.
However some days i have been finding 3 brown eggs laid but they are all the same size.
Yesterday we found a very small brown egg on the floor of the coop. Who laid it??thought maybe a silkies but they are only 3 months old and the big one are only 4 months??i think we have 2 or 3 new chickens laying just unsure who and who is laying these peewee ones?

Teeny tiny eggs are called wind, fart or fairy eggs. They're a glitch in a layer's system, not an egg from a new layer. Whoever laid it should be back to normal in a few days.
