    It has many names, but one of them is "wind egg" I believe. Some folks call them fa*t eggs (but we're not supposed to use that word on here). They're so cute!!

    Yep, wind egg, fart egg, rooster egg. Full of just the white, like the Egg Beaters. [​IMG]

    Usually hens lay those when they are starting a molt or they need a rest from egg production, nice name to call them is wind eggs. I would have gotten my mouth washed out with soap growing up if I had called them the other name [​IMG]

    You got your first fart egg! Or poot egg. What ever you want to call it. Here is what mine looked like when we cracked it.
