    That's bizzare, I just collected the tiniest quail egg we ave ever seen today also.

    I assume that there would be a little egg yolk in there too, does anyone know?

    I've had two mini ones like this and when I cracked it, the first one had a cloudy 'off' looking yolk, and the second had no yolk at all.....the first egg in the picture is a double, the second normal sized and the last is obviously on of the mini eggs. They can sometimes do this when they first start laying or are stressed.
