    This morning when I let the laying hens out of their pen, I checked for eggs & found a Teeny Weeny Little Googy
    with some normal eggs in the same nest box.

    It weighs 20 grams & the largest one weighs 82 grams. They are all from Isa Brown hens.

    These little guys happen now and then - common names are wind egg, fairy egg or even fart egg.
