    It just looks like one of your hens laid a small egg. Happens sometimes. [​IMG]

    What breed/s are they? Sometimes they will lay a rather small egg.

    I have two RIR's, one is laying, one is too young. I have a Cochin, and her's is in the picture. Then I have two Silkies and one Silkie/OEG cross-that are laying age. It had a little bit of blood on it like it was their first time laying and its alot smaller than any we've ever had.

    I know that sometimes mine will lay a smaller egg than usual. That may be what has happened.

    I only have two that lay.... I have a Cochin and she right now is laying in the feed bucket. I have an RIR (brown eggs)-and she lays in the corner of the nesting area and this one was in the nesting box with a little blood on it. I think its another chicken. I have a Silkie/OEG mix...it might be her. I'll see if there are other eggs...
