    Yes. I don't know what causes it- Mine didn't come from new layers unless someone started very late [​IMG]
    My daughter wanted to do something with it so I left it in the fridge for months. Just threw it away about a week ago. [​IMG] Actually got a few of them over a year.

    I had a hen to lay mini eggs when she first began laying. They started out at about the same size as yours reggiejr and gradually got bigger and bigger until they were normal size. She lays very nice large eggs now.

    I did have a couple of those from my hen when she started laying again after raising her chicks.

    reggiejr - I am interested to know about the dates on your eggs... Is this how you keep up with what is fresh and what is older? Or is there some other meaning? Just curious.
