    I found a new egg in the coop today! It is so tiny and cute! So of course it went into the incubator.

    Do you think my sizzle (silkie cross) or bantam cochin pullets layed it? I don't have any other small birds in the flock.

    My bantam Cochin used to lay eggs just like that! Silkie eggs are usually really white, but it could be hers depending on what she's crossed with.

    Looks like most of my sizzle and my silkie eggs.

    To me, it looks like a Cochin bantam egg. My Cochin Bantams used to lay eggs like that.

    I am peeking on the coop cam we have trying to catch the tiny egg layer. So far no tiny egg today!
