    When I was outside in the afternoon I noticed a very small egg near the water in the Mallard pen.

    This is the egg compared to a normal sized Mallard egg:

    Next to it is normal chicken egg
    My family tradition is whoever’s hen it is that person has to eat the first egg because it’s the best tasting egg the hen will ever lay
