    the other day i was out collecting eggs and in one of the nestboxes was a little tiny egg. i usually find one of these miniature eggs once a year or so and i didn't know if it was a sign of anything or not.?

    I call them nuggets. They rarely have yolks though, so incubating will likely be disappointing. But hey - worth a shot right?
