    I've heard about fart eggs before - but I've never got one until now:

    I put it next to a normal egg - so you could see how tiny it is. I love it!

    cute egg! I had one, when it cracked open the yolk took up most of the shell with a teeny tiny bit of white around it.

    I've been dying to open it up and see what's inside, but haven't yet. The other part of me wants to keep it - so perfect and tiny.

    But you could save the shell, Kinda like bronzing babies shoes, and it is so cute!

    Quote:That is exactly what my mom and grandpa told me to do with my first egg lol! They said I should blow it out, poor in glue to make a good support structure, and then paint it gold or bronze and mount it on a little plaque of some sort to commemorate the event! Too bad that I had already cracked and eaten it by the time they told me ... I just couldn't wait!

    I have two of them in my kitchen that were layed about a year or so ago. I didn't blow them, I just let them evaporate. They're empty now from what I can tell. Just as light as a feather.
    I opened one one time that was all white -- no yolk.
    Pretty cute aren't they?!

    I love "fart egg" [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
