Tiny egg

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
if one of my chickens layed a really small fertile egg, do you think it would be a very small chick. Also would it be ok and able to live outside in the winter. It gets pretty cold here

I wouldn't try to hatch that egg for a few reasons.
1.The air sack would not be big enough for it and the chick.
2.The egg is probably too small for a chick to get to hatching stage
3.The egg may not even have a yoke.

I would stick with normal sized eggs.
Goodluck

Ugh that's disappointing. I wanted a tiny chicken... I know it's not a good idea but could poking a small hole in the air sack of the egg work. I've accidentally had an egg with a hole in the air sack hatch before

I would prefer no to try it
As bacteria could get into the egg and kill the chick.
It could also just ferment the egg.
Goodluck

Look for bantams for sale in your area, that'd give you some tiny chickens!

I agree with that.
Bantams lay small eggs which mean chicks will be smaller than large fowl chicks.
