    Yesterday when I checked for eggs in my D' Uccle pen, I about passed out. I saw a teeny tiny egg!! I took it inside and today I put it in the bator. The egg looks normal other than being REALLY small. It is no larger than avery small grape, and would fit inside the drinking opening of a pop can!! It is VERY little. Do you think an egg so small could hatch? This is weird cause about a month ago I found a chicken egg of mine that was the size of my palm and was the size of a goose egg!!!!!!!!!! Any advice?????

    Are here eggs always that size? Sometimes iff they do not have enough oyster shell, they will lay flawd eggs. My hens sometimes lay eggs without shells. if it is adnormal, it might not hatch...and if it does it might have problems

    If it is tiny tiny... it probably doesn't have a devloped yolk, in which case there is nothing from which a embryo could devlop. If it's so tiny and not "normal" or small normal, it could very well just have a meat spot in it that was treated like a yolk, or just albumen.
