    [​IMG] Congratulations!! [​IMG]
    I recently found a super mini egg from a new layer! Not sure if it was from a Chantecler or Barred Rock. Chickens are so fascinating!

    Wow---this is quite a find. How unusual.

    Occassionaly I get a marble sized egg. I think some call them "wingless" which is a strange term for an egg.

    But the other egg is huge.

    Big chicken?

    Lovely! Looks like you have quite a variety of chickens there. Ours all lay the same brown eggs, we gave up trying to distinguish them ages ago. [​IMG]
    We do get a lot of small ones though. Not sure if it's because of some nutrition deficiency? They rarely ever lay double yolkers anymore.
    We are more flexible with feeding now, most of the time once a day because a) we get home late and b) they usually don't eat much in the evenings anyway. They free range so much during the day they're all full by then. [​IMG]

    Sorry. Started rambling again. [​IMG]

    Those little bitty eggs are pretty common and often have super small or no yolk. Lots of folks call them fart eggs, or rooster eggs. We call them wind eggs, we don't say fart!
