    Hah! Pretty cute. What breeds are the possible culprits? One of my RIR lays a teeny one every once in a while.

    Had a BO lay one of those one day. It wasn't nice inside!

    Lots like a pullet egg - when they are just starting to lay. Do you have any girls like that?

    The egg is from a 3 year old leghorn. It has been really hot here, so I am thinking that was the cause. Haven't cracked it open yet.

    The small egg probably is yokeless - it happens just like jelly eggs.

    That is what I like to call a fart egg. This is a result of something going wrong in the formation process. It either has a tiny yolk or no yolk at all.

    Yeah, the one we got was all white with some blood streaks. Isolated happening though, 1 out of 650 eggs.
    I'd suggest opening this kind of egg over its own bowl so if it's icky it doesn't ruin whatever you're using it for.
