    One of my little girds just recently layed her first egg at 16 weeks. A couple of days later I got another one but it is very small. It's not a Fart egg. It's a Pee Wee. I weigh all of my egg in grams. The Pee Wee egg weighed 18 grams. A Pee Wee is any egg under 42 grams. Here is a gram scale.
    <42 = Pee Wee
    42-48 = Small
    49-55 = Medium
    56- 63 = Large
    64-69 = X-Large
    >70 = Jumbo.

    How much would a fart egg weigh on this scale?

    I have never weighed when but I'm sure that at some point I will get one and I will weigh it. Here are some pictures of a couple of fart eggs I have gotten.
