    I think it looks like a malted milk egg. Fart egg?? [​IMG]

    Fairy egg sounds more palatable. What's it look like inside??

    Yes, it's a "fart egg" rofl. They usually don't have yolks, but a few can have teeny, tiny yolks in them...

    fart egg, wind egg, fairy egg .... I don't know, are there more names for them?
     
  9. Hi! It's a nice surprise to find (I find more of them out in the yards than in nestboxes) and they don't deserve the unpleasant title.
    I've got a big collection of 'Fairy Eggs'. They are cute decorated as Christmas tree ornaments.
    That's the first you've found?

    It is the first Ive found, and it was in the nextbox. I have 2 Ameraucanas that are broody that are hogging up the laying box, so I only have one other Am. laying, and my 2 EEs. I have the young light colored Am in that pen also, so by process of elimination, its her egg.
