    I thought, surely that's not an egg in there! Surely, it was.

    That's a peanut beside it, btw.

    Is this normal for established layers?

    Not really normal, no, but not totally unique. Usually it's just the new girls who lay teeny ones. Put that egg in a cool dry place for a long time, and the insides will eventually dry up and you can keep it forever!

    It probably does not have a yolk! I get one every 2 months. they can get smaller! You would think that would come from a bantam!

    Well it is a very nice color. Looks like a small bird egg.

    I have only gotten one and it did have the tiniest yolk in it. So amazing. [​IMG]
