    So we have a mystery bantam sized egg. its dark brown but none of our bantams lay brown. we have an appenzeller rooster and a RIR rooster so could they change the size of the egg laid?

    If it is a fairly tiny egg, it may be what is called a wind egg or fart egg...........
    Just happens occasionally.
    I will post my picture[​IMG]

    The two on the left are Serama eggs. the one on top regular size and below it a wind egg. Same on the right from my LF sized eggs..........Top regular, below wind egg
    Hope this helps.............

    I have read both ways here on BYC's.....sometimes they do not have a yolk..............
    But I followed a thread one time of someone that successfully hatched thier little egg
    and Yes......it hatched a little chicken........good Luck

    Edited wording on my pictures.

    So it could be fertile or it couldnt? i may leave it in the incubator just to see if it hatches
