what's up with this tiny egg?

I found this tiny egg on the poop board this morning. It is the size of a medium red grape, same color too .Is one of my hens playing an Easter egg trick on me or should I watch for a problem?

You have a little fairy or fart egg there. Check out this article ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/common-egg-quality-problems

I got one just like it several weeks ago.  I fully expected a "fart" egg too!  Imagine my surprise when my granddaughter and I cracked it into a bowl and found a perfectly formed, absolutely normal little egg inside!  Too cute for words!!

Oh that is super cute Blooie love.gif

I've only ever had one but I'm not sure what was in it as I kept for as long as I could because it was so tiny. It started smelling a bit funky so I was forced to bin it. I like cute dinky/miniature things!!

Never heard of a fart egg, thanks for the article Yorkshire Coop. After seeing Blooie's tiny egg, I broke mine open. Inside, a perfect tiny egg.
