    One of my four (10 month old) hens hadn't been laying recently then this tiny egg showed up today........ What's up with that?

    Thanks granny hatchet! I'm guessing this egg came from one of my older hens (nearly 4 years old) as her last egg, if that's how the "wind" egg thing works..........

    We had a weird egg today.. We actually got quite a few of the little eggs first, but we have a pen of 5, so I'm not sure if it's different chickens that are laying them. Today's egg was an egg inside of an egg. [​IMG]
