I have 5 hens that have been laying for awhile. today I got 5 normal eggs and 2 tiny eggs!!
I have a bantam that lays very intermittently and 20 teens, the teens are all large foul could the tiny eggs be from the large foul and will get bigger as they get bigger??? or from the only bantam???
Very odd

It could be either/or, a "fart egg" from a LF, an egg from a new layer or from a bantam.

Quote:Fart eggs or wind eggs for the socially uptight are tiny little eggs, usually without a yolk, that a pullet or hen may occasionally pass. They are harmless to the hen and I suppose harmless to humans if you wanted to eat it. Just a glitch at the egg factory.
