    Anyone ever get a miniature egg?

    Looks like it came from my Ameraucana but I also posted a malformed egg picture which came from my Delaware.

    Yup got 2 just like it about 6months ago. Still in the egg fridge. As far as the malformed one,you will get those sometimes. I got a RIR that lays one that has ripple waves on one end ever now and then.

    One of my bantams laid one of those once. My daughter actually watched her lay it. It was a little smaller, but not much. Haven't had one since though.
