    could be a fart egg.

    Do you have a bunch of new girls in the coop?
    Sometimes they have to shoot out a few duds before they get it right!

    That's not too small. It is the size that my OE Bantam would lay. Usually 2 of her's equals one standard size. Do you have standard sized chicks? Some will lay a few small ones till their system gets rolling.
