I know that sounds like a strange question! I have 3 batches of chickens. The oldest batch are over a year old and lay normal sized eggs (standard sized chickens). The second batch, also standard-size, are about 5 months old and have just started to lay. I am getting smaller, pullet-sized eggs from them. My third batch is only 3 months old. There are 4 pullets and they are mixed breeds - I got the fertilized eggs from a friend because I had a broody hen. I don't think she has any bantams... So this morning I found this tiny egg! (That's a standard sized egg on the left, a pullet egg in the middle, and the tiny egg on the right) It wasn't in the coop. It was in the fenced-in area that surrounds the coop. Some of my 2nd batch of chickens are being annoying and not laying in the nesting boxes, so it is not unusual to find eggs outside the coop. However, they lay in areas that are secluded. I found this egg in the grass, kind of out in the open. I found it as I was letting the chickens out this morning, so I guess it was there yesterday when I locked them up but I didn't notice it since it was dark. So ... could this possibly be a chicken egg? It is so small, I would have thought that it was the egg of some wild bird. But the coloring is very much like a typical chicken egg. Is it possible that one of the 3-month olds laid this egg and it is small because they are still so young? Any thoughts about this mystery egg would be greatly appreciated!
