    I hatched a fart egg which turned out to be one of the more infamous threads on BYC. Here is the egg on a dime which is just slightly smaller than a penny. It was more round than egg shaped and even pipped at the wrong end.

    I've had a few teeny eggs like that over the years. It's certainly nothing amazing like the people in the article seem to think, imo.


    Red, did the chick survive?

    Quote:Agree--I've never raised anything but full-sized chickens and have gotten some eggs the size of robin's eggs--never gave them a second thought. I didn't realize I was using a possible world record in my morning scrambled eggs.

    I had one about the same size as the one in the article and it had a yolk. It's not really a phenomena... [​IMG]

    This is what hatched sitting on a quarter. She is alive and well today, and a little over a year old.
