    Today I found the smallest egg my girls have ever laid. It is green so it had to have been laid by one of my EEs, I think it was Big Blue since she was hanging around the nest boxes a lot today but I could be wrong lol here it is

    Here you can see how small it is compared to one of my girls regular egg

    WOW ... That's tiny alright. And so deep blue/green. Is your hen just starting out?
    Sometimes newbies lay tiny starter eggs.

    I know what you mean. I love my EEs best.
    My 3 EE pullets just started last month so now I'm getting a fun array of egg colors.(see avatar)

    No both my EEs are well seasoned but if it was Big Blue I wouldn't be surprised b/c she is actually getting really really old and when a hen gets well past her prime she can start to lay some pretty funky eggs... I can still remember when my Big Blue laid her first egg, seems just like yesterday... lol
    here she is
