    She is a EE (Americauna). Her eggs will get bigger. She's very pretty. She looks like my 4. [​IMG]

    I just started noticing these little eggs about a year ago, i thought we had a little bird laying in the nesting boxes! We have another one that has the same mustache so i assume she too is a EE, the others eggs are full sized. Her legs are gray. The funny thing is she is probably 3 or 4 years old why did she just start laying little eggs?? Thank you i think she is pretty as well.

    Not all EE have green legs, although many do. Since they are basically a mutt, they can pop up with most any color. Ameraucanas have slate legs. She does appear to be the EE type.

    Her "mustache" is called muffs and beard. I agree that she looks like an EE and they can really have any color legs.

    Her little eggs are because she is coming back into lay from a break. They will increase back to normal size. Some hens lay those tiny eggs when they return to laying (for example after moulting or brooding) and others start off with normal size eggs. It is quite normal either way.
