    Starting Clockwise from the top: White Rock, CA White X Porcelain D'uccle hen, Barred Rock, Black Star, EE, Pearl White Leghorn.

    Center: First egg for one of our Black Star pullets.... will be 19 weeks this week.

    I'm thinking the one on the bottom is a double yolker.

    OMG! That is so cute, a little fart egg isn't it? I can't wait to see what I'm going to get when our girls start laying. I have a long way to go, so it's neat to see something like this. Beautiful assortment of colors btw.

    I've had fart eggs before, but never anything like this one!

    I almost don't want to break it to see what's inside.... but I do!

    I never got any fart eggs with my new layers. I did with my other ones. I have one the size of a quarter. My new girls started laying pretty good size eggs right away. [​IMG]

    I wonder if something that small would even hatch. That would be a tiny lil chick.

    I doubt there is a yolk in it. My kids were freaking about it... even my wife was showing visitors that little egg... and she actually went into the back yard to look at one of my 4 X 10 breeding pens.... I have 12 juvies in it a present.
