    from left to right, a large brown chicken egg, a bantam cochin egg, and my OEGB Amelia's very first egg!!

    I am ridiculously amused by the tiny size of this egg. Even my lavender Dutch hen, who lays the smallest chicken eggs I've seen before now, lays bigger eggs than this. Not a big deal, I know, but I just found it in the OEGB "condo" and wanted to share the smile.

    I found one in the nestbox last week that was just a tad bigger than a quarter. [​IMG]
