    I thought I new which of my hens were laying until this morning. I went out there to get the egg and when I picked it up it had a SLW feather stuck to it. [​IMG] I though it was my BA laying eggs. But now I don't know. So which breed lays the smaller egg. The eggs are about 2 inches long and weigh around 1.75 oz average so far.
    Next to a store bought large white egg:

    I know that my BAs lay larger eggs than my SLWs. Although the coloring of your egg looks like my BAs' eggs. My SLWs' eggs are a little darker, smaller and have a "shininess" to them, not matte like the BAs. So I guess I didn't really answer your question [​IMG] But, that looks more like one of my BAs' eggs.
