    I have a salmon faverolle and the egg I get from her is on the left ( the smaller one) now I got her a while ago as an adult and they didn't know how old she was. She's in good health and she's normal sized I think... Haha one woman said her eggs are so small they might be fart eggs... But they have yolks. Are they that small? Is she a bantam possibly? Or is there something wrong maybe? The other egg is from my barred rock if that makes a difference!

    Looks like a smaller egg to me. Definitely not a "fart" egg, which I think is kind of a crass term, I prefer fairy egg lol. Some birds just lay smaller eggs. I have 3 true ameraucanas and one of them lays smaller eggs in general. She is the same size as the others and they're all in good health. Her eggs are just smaller.

    Faverolles lay medium sized eggs, so they will likely be smaller than your Rock's eggs.
