Found this in nesting box


Jul 22, 2016
I am new here so hoping i am doing this right. We have 8 hens that are just over 1 year old, one turned very broody so we got some furtil eggs from someone and let her hatch and raise them. They are now 8 weeks old and last night we found this tiny egg in a nesting box. What do you think?
It's a egg called fart fairy or oops eggs, caused when a small foreign object enters the oviduct and is treated like a egg. They normally don't have a yolk and there is nothing to worry about. I actually got one yesterday
Welcome to BYC! I agree on fart egg as well. Happens from time to time and they're nothing to worry about. Hens can occasionally plop out some really weird looking eggs. Wavy shells, odd shapes, sometimes even shell-less eggs. As long as it's not consistent, it's more than likely a simple "oops."
So good to have people here eager to help and inform, thanks for the info face book let me down but you guys didn't. :)
