    Check out what Alexia gave me today! It's in the pic between a normal Trixie and a normal Haley. Alexia's laying has been off lately; was she just clearing the pipes?

    Yes, she's likely just clearing the pipes. Cute egg!

    I read here that fart eggs are yolkless, and the darn thing is so tiny I believe it. That said, I daren't open it before my step daughters are here to witness it, so I'll have to wait until Thursday...

    I have quails, and thats what their eggs look like, they do have a yolk and they are yummy..
    Seems funny that she could even make an egg that small.
    I also have bantams and their eggs are small, but not that small.

    Not all fart eggs are yolkless.

    We had one of those little eggs. We took a pic of it between two normal ones just as you have done. My 10 yr old grandson said, "Mamaw, it's probably her first egg. Give her a break." [​IMG]

    We got the opposite. One of our chickens laid a ginormous one, almost 2x bigger than normal ones. Wish I'd been home to hear the song with that one!
