    I went out to get eggs at lunch and found this. It was next to a regular egg. It is a different color than the eggs I am used to getting. Also completely round. I do not have any bantys either.

    I don't know what to think of it.

    Sometimes chickens will lay "fart eggs." If you crack it open and there is no yolk then that is probably what it is. It's just a hiccup and not a big deal.

    I had quite a few hens and occasionally I'd get a little oops egg like that. Nothing to worry about!

    I cracked it open and it didn't have a real yolk but a little pin yolk. I fed it to the dog. He did not care!

    I opened one once and it had this weird little bit of yolk in it. Looked like someone started scrambling it. Good dog food LOL
