    LOL but i dont know what exactly to do with it! It looks like a capsule, it's sort of pink and i am not 100% about the type of chicken she is. Here is a pic of the egg and one of the layer.

    Input greatly appreciated, i'm thinking i'll put it in the bator since i'm on day 10 and by lockdown i'll know for sure. Theres nothing else i can do with it. I mean i COULD blow it out and hang it from my ceiling! LOL

    Thank you...i think the egg its self is quite comical but i'm phsyched up! I had to modify a cup on my turner and decide which end was pointy and which end was the rounded. Like i said i have no expectations of it, but i have to try just because LOL

    Quote:Uhhhh lol cause it's no bigger than a minute! Although it IS my kinda egg, small, and would be gone in 1 bite. I'm not an egg eater.

    It's hard to be sure from that pic, but, your chicken may be a Delaware.

    Finished getting my first dozen today. Took a week and a day. I have two leghorns that are laying now. They are still a little small but getting bigger each day. The other 4 sexlinked are the same age but not laying yet.
