    I'll start, but feel free to add your pics too.

    Line them up like I did, on a ruler to show true size. I'm curious to see if there are any teeny chicken eggs smaller than my teeniest one.

    These are bantam pyncheon eggs, so not huge to begin with, but gosh those teeny ones really are tiny!

    LOL, I used to think I had the cutest little eggs.... until I saw your itsy bitsy teensy eggs! Though, to be fair, mine are from my standard size chickens and one of my ducks.

    I love the color on the EE egg. The duck egg is farthest to the right.

    Here's hoping more people post pics of their tiny eggs!

    Thanks everyone! I think they're too cute!

    I love the EE egg too. I never seem to get any from my blue eggers. [​IMG] One can hope, right. [​IMG] They would make cute little ornaments of some sort. Do you save yours?

    I do save my tiny eggs... though I'm not really sure why! I have a basket full of blown emu eggs as a decoration in one of our spare rooms. The contrast between the size of the emu eggs and the tiny eggs always raises comments from guests.
