    I had this just happen recently not sure if this is common. The egg was normal in size, but chicken was not well in my opinion. Any reason this happens?

    I had a EE hen just come out of molt who layed 2 of those water balloon eggs,..reg. size though,...then she laid a fart egg with a good shell (it is blue,..looks like a robin egg,..so pretty!) and now she is back to laying normal size eggs with a nice pretty blue shell,....I hear it is common for young hens just laying their first eggs,...I wouldn't worry bout' it.

    I had one of those too!! However the shell was hard and when I cracked it open there was no yoke, only white.

    Most of the fart eggs I have gotten do not have a yolk.
