    One of my young cuckoo marans hens laid a fart egg today.
    This pic is a mature hen egg, the fart egg and a younger hens egg.

    Those tiny eggs are my favorite! If you want to keep it, just put it aside for a few months and it will be completely dried out. I keep a bunch of them in a nest, on my desk. A farmer once told me she called them "luck eggs". I like that idea!
