    I seriously doubt an 8 week old has the ability to lay an egg. I bet it's a fart egg from your RIR. Does it have a yolk inside?

    Probably not the Sebrights, they're too young.

    Every once and a while chickens lay what are called "fart eggs", small or weird eggs. That's probably what you have. It's not anything to worry about.

    It had a yolk just like any other egg and it tasted pretty good as well [​IMG]
