    We got an egg that's smaller than a quarter. What is that all about?

    It's a yolkless egg also known as a fart egg [​IMG] Pretty common when they are gearing up for laying season [​IMG]

    Everybody has a bad day every now and then.

    It's best not to bring it up in front of the group, as it would embarass the layer. Think of it as a fart during a meeting: you just ignore it and everybody gets bak to work.

    Fart Egg? Ohhhh, my kids are going to Luvvvvv that one!

    I'm laughing so hard I'm crying! Farting is grand humor in this house!

    I got one like that and cracked it open, and it did have a tiny yolk.
