So we are getting a steady flow of eggs each day, usually 4-5 eggs(we have 9 hens). Today when my mom went to collect eggs, she found an egg about the size of a quarter and not bigger. Could this be a new hen laying an egg? My brahma bantam even lays bigger eggs and she is a little banty hen. I also have a golden campine who is small but don't they lay whitish eggs. This egg looked like my other Australorps egg(color). Which hens lay darker eggs, australorps or RIR's? I'm so confused right now because the egg is so small compared to the others and I'm wondering who could have laid it?
