Pullet egg or just an unusual egg?

Bennett Road Chickens

In the Brooder
Aug 10, 2019
Hi All,
We just found the strange egg in the photo below this morning. It has a hard and fully-formed shell, but it's tiny (dollar bill and normal egg for scale). The hens in our flock include a leghorn, a silkie, two asian blacks, and a golden comet. Our chicks are a one-month old half leghorn/half silkie, a three-week old half asian black/half silkie, and a three-week old half golden comet/half silkie.

We're pretty new to this, but our chicks are too young the be laying, right? We've been getting about 2 eggs a day lately. The leghorn and the silkie stopped laying when they got broody and still aren't laying because they're raising chicks. I think one of the remaining 3 hens stopped laying, too. Is it common to get little eggs like this when a hen starts laying again, or is this a pullet egg? I don't think our oldest chick is going to lay brown eggs (if it's even a pullet, which we don't know).

Any opinions? Thanks in advance for your input!
