    Checked the coop tonight and found this in one of the nest boxes. Wondering if I should put it in the incubator and see what happens. I saw a post here last year about a lady who hatched a fart egg, but never saw what happened to that chick other than it was kinda goofy looking after it hatched. Doubt that this one is even fertile, but I might give it a shot. My main concern is that I don't want to hatch a chick that would possibly suffer a short painful life due to some deformity.

    It's very cute, but certainly do not incubate.

    I put 2 of mine up on my hutch. Year later they are dried out on the inside and look cute setting in antique egg cups

    I was reading the thread you were referring to last night, the chick grew up into a normal hen, no health issues or deformities.
