    Sure looks like my BOs egg. Got 3 of them and the one that was first to lay was laying banty sized and still today her eggs are smaller than her sisters. The color looks about right, kind of pinkish brown.

    If she just started laying it may take a while for her eggs to get up to size. Also, keep in mind that the size of the chicken does not dictate the size of the eggs.
