Hi MShain,

Welcome to the BYC forum.

Sometimes, the egg-laying mechanics of the chicken go wrong. It's possible that the tiny egg will have no yolk. It is probably just a once-in-a-blue-moon thing, and nothing at all to worry about. Blow the egg out, save it, and have a trophy of a tiny egg. ;O)

I have gotten a couple of these out of my hens. they have had yolks in them and they were very delicious. They were very "rich" in flavor. Yummy. Make sure that when you crack it open, make sure that you do it into a bowl by itself to be on the safe side. By all means if you can cook it, do it and enjoy it.

1 3/4 inch long

I call those hiccups in the egg factory. I got 3 back to back from my serama pens. The first one being the biggest the next 2 the size of jelly beans.

This is the first one, fits inside a beer bottle cap. Next to other regular sized serama eggs


Here it is again next to the second smaller egg laid the next day
