    My brother works for the Montgomery Water Works and while they down in a pit he found these small, white, hard- shelled eggs. When I say small I really mean it. We can't understand how they got where they did seeing as the cover to the pit over laps and doesn't have any holes in the top. It's also flush against a brick wall. I was thinking that they might be hummingbird eggs because of the size, but I really have no idea what they could be.

    The only problem with that is that we don't have any lizards or snakes around here that lay hard shelled eggs. And we don't have any snakes that lay eggs that small.

    Would anyone happen to know of a rehaber in Montgomery I could give them to? Try as I might, I can't find one and I'd rather give them a chance.

    Wow, those are small!

    I think most lizard eggs are softer shelled, but I could be wrong about that. f they are in fact bird eggs, they are probably hummingbird eggs due to the side. There was no nest nearby? It seems strange that a bird that small would lay them on the ground, but it is possible that they are lizard as well!
