    I kept trying to Google it but it just kept kicking out small breeds and ye olde list of awesome layers. *sigh* I guess the interwebz can't fathom that I want little eggs! Can you suggest some breeds that are consistent layers of small eggs? (Not the teeny peewee eggs like bantams lay)

    The lists linked above are really good.

    I can say that the hamburg chickens I had years ago were consistent layers of medium white eggs.

    Flighty.....kinda, good fliers too and pretty birds.

    My Sicilian Buttercup lays a small egg that's a pretty Rose Quartz color. Her feathers are so soft they feel like velvet. And she has a lovely sweet personality.

I have two, and they are so pretty, with the spangled feathers and fancy comb. They are pretty decent layers too, of small-to-medium size eggs. The small eggs in the pic are theirs, compared to a brown egg from a Wyandotte and then 2 duck eggs on the far right.
