    Currently house sitting a house that has some other hens (besides my 4 girls who are here as well, hah) and collected eggs yesterday and found 1 white egg, little bit bigger than the size of a marble, no yolk inside (haven't cracked it, too scared to, but it's really light inside). Just curious what this means??

    It's just a fart egg (wind egg). Not uncommon and doesn't really mean anything, except that there was a misfire in the egg factory.

    Happens a lot with older birds--the name for it is new to me though. :lol I give them to my wife who adds them to her morning eggs.

    I've only seen one or two from my two year old hens. I think from the same hen actually. They are adorable.

    I wish I would get some fart eggs, they are so little! I do get some very tiny eggs from one of my 1 1/2 year old hen.
