    This was laid by a W. Leghorn who died a few days after laying it.

    Amazing! Looks like a very tiny yoke. Sorry your lady died.

    Thanks, I was bummed too. She was a new addition and had only been laying for about 4 months.

    The egg was pretty small too. If you see in the second pic you can compare the shell size to a 1oz shot glass.

    We got a couple dribble eggs when we had an outbreak from a non quarantined addition.
    MIL just wouldnt listen to me and the poor chickens suffered. Pretty ≠ Safe

    We also saw a few after everyone recovered. However they were much more normal than that, just a slightly smaller egg with a tail.
    Kinda looked like a reallly big sperm.

    Sorry about the loss. Odd thing is over here none of our kooky egg girls died, lots many others though.
