    These cute but useless eggs came from a Silkie hen. I know it's normal to get small and abnormal eggs. I have heard of pea sized eggs but almost overlooked this small one. Cute value is off the scale. My silkies are laying almost everyday. They are on a diet of good quality layer feed with treats like black oil sunflower seeds, greens, and some scratch grains Share pictures of your strange looking eggs.

    The other pic shows the eggs compared to an Orpington, and a normal Silkie egg.

  2. Does she do this every so often or is this just a ......fart egg?

    A tiny egg like this one is always intriguing to me.
