I have 6 laying hens (3 standard, a silkie, and 2 bantam). Also have a 20 week old cuckoo maran that hasn't started laying yet.

I got these 7 eggs today. Who laid the tiny one??? Was it...
A) a bantam showing off with a 2nd egg
B) my cuckoo maran laying her first
C) a quail who snuck in, laid, and snuck out (jk)

What say you fluffy butt friends?

It's also a possible "fairy" egg ;)
When you say "bantam showing off with 2nd egg" not within the same day, right?
Yes, that's what I meant by showing off. I collect eggs at close to the same time every day, so that's 7 eggs from 6 hens in 24 hours, unless the tiny one is the cuckoo maran laying her first.
