    Just a question but has anyone ever tried to incubate one?
    If so did it hatch?

    Yeah there's a thread on one, and someone hatched it, and it grew up perfectly normal and I think it was the same size as the other chickens.

    I wouldn't try it. I am not against it, I just really wouldn't want the chick to develop and die during the incubation process.

    By the way, I have a few fart eggs, and I wanted to keep them so I poked a hole into both ends and blew out the gross stuff, but the egg shell was really thick, just think if a chick that size was to try to hatch it would have a REALLY hard time trying to get out of the thick shell.

    Yeah I blew both of my laying hen's first eggs and im glad I dont give them oyster shell because they were both hard to get the needle threw the shell!

    OT - What do you do with your blown eggs? I painted the one as a christmas ornimant for my daughter but it didnt turn out that great...

    Isn't a Fart egg a yolkless egg? If there's no yolk no chick will grow.

    Are you meaning a first (small) egg? I have one in lockdown right now, so far it's doing awesome.
