    Not sure if the first made it through so trying again. Easter Sunday today and my son found this odd egg in the nesting box. By now we know which hen lays what size, shape and color of egg so this one is like nothing we have seen yet. It's less than half the size of a normal bantam egg.

    I placed it in the incubator but don't want to hatch it if its a morning dove because they must be forced fed from hatch.

    What do you think? [​IMG]

    We do have a heard of morning doves that frequent the garden....

    Is it a Mutant Ninja Minion chicken or something else?

    Thanks Christee

    Possibly a 'fart egg'. I wouldn't incubate it. Candle it to see if it has a yolk. 'Fart eggs' often have no yolk.

    Thank you so much! Never heard of a fart egg but now I know. I think I'll yank it from my incubator. I'm so glad I'm here. I have learned so much already by looking up Fart Egg and reading other posts.
