    I have a little bantie. She is black with feathered feet. She is very very very small. I bought her from my local feed store last spring. She was .99 cents, and just labeled "bantams". I'm not sure what kind she is. She is such a sweety!
    So I went out to collect eggs today, and over in the corner of the pen I saw this little egg. I don't know why she didnt go to the laying box, but there it was on the ground. It's smaller than a cherry tomato. Very small. I was shocked at its size. It is so cute.
    I am very happy.
    Its funny to think a chick can come out of an egg that size!

    Thank you!
    It should be normal.
    My gray japanese bantie layed early in the fall.. she stopped and hasnt layed since.. I think she's just slowing down because of the cold weather. She just started though. I might have to buy the poor girl a saddle though, my RIR roosters find her the most attractive out of all my hens...
    But it should be normal though! && congrats to you also! [​IMG]
