    One of my Malay hens laid a tiny egg today. Normal Malay egg on right......Silver laced polish egg 2nd from right. Duckwing old English bantam 3rd from right [green] and the small Malay egg I found today. What causes a small egg like this?

    Thanks for the link BB. The Malay hens have been laying a few months and the eggs had gotten larger and darker with good fertility and then this one came along. I was hoping for a cute little dwarf. [​IMG]
