Tiny tiny eggs - what's going on?!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My trusty cream legbars who always lay beautifully in their nestboxes have this week laid two miniature eggs on the floor of their run. I can't work out why! The eggs are identical in colour and texture to their usual eggs so I don't think it's another bird (and there are no nests nearby). Any ideas what's going on??

Looks like it could be a "fart egg".

There are several threads here on BYC about them.

Could just be a glitch....happens sometimes.

Funky egg sometimes surprise them, don't 'feel' the same,

and they don't get to the nests before they pop out.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
