    I am unsure who layed this egg but it is insanely small, I'm talking like button quail egg size!! [​IMG] Heres a few pics for a general idea of how small it was:

    You have to eat it!

    Weirdly enough, I had a really small one today, too. I think it was one of my SLW first eggs. It was more like a banty egg.

    Hey before you collect that prize - I'm not so sure you're the winner.

    Here's mine. A tiny little green egg laid day before yesterday and another one today, same size. Pic shows it in nest next to regular egg. My Blue Ameraucans just started laying - yeah!!!!

    AWWW I just cracked it open and it was complete with a tiny yolk and everything, it even had the fertilization "bullseye"!! The yolk was about the size of a fingernail, heres a rough pic next to a penny:

    Wow! I can't believe how small it is. My chickens have been laying for 3 weeks now and I haven't gotten anything even close to that small.

    It is so cute!
