    One of my moms friends hens laid this egg and she wanted me to have it so I could see how small one of her hens laid,and it's just over an inch long I thought it was pretty cool[​IMG][​IMG]

  3. is it fertilized? if it is you should totally try to hatch it [​IMG]


    we got one like that but my brother was in such a hurry to cook it I couldn't even try.

    I would try to hatch but its been in the fridge for a while and its tiny and it would make the chick not be able to grow right and it might have a problem
