    Well, I went out of town for 5 days. I just knew I would get my first egg while I was gone...I was right! My DH called and said he found a funny little golf ball shaped egg in the garage! AAAAUUUUGGGGHHHH! I don't have any pics because I am not home yet, staying with a friend enroute to cut my trip up a little. I will be home this evening and if I get a chance I will take a pic. Oh wait, does a 'fart egg' count as a first egg?

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is a 'fart egg'?

    A fart egg sure does count, it's still an egg! Congratulations. [​IMG]

    Quote:A fart egg is an unusually small egg, about the size of a grape or a little bigger. I've had my full grown hens who usually lay jumbo eggs lay one, they are still a good egg but mine had no yolk. [​IMG]
