    My standard size RIR and Black Australorp (I think) have been laying extra large beautiful eggs... that is until today when I went down and found these strange little things!
    The one on the left is their normal size eggs and it is a light brown. The 2 in the middle are what I found today and the white one on the right is one of my banty's eggs just for compairson. What the heck?!? Any ideas what might be going on?

    Totally inclosed pen so nothing can get in there, and I don't have a rooster so I can't hatch them. [​IMG]
    This is just bizarre!

    If they aren't your eggs then a rooster doesn't matter.

    I got a teeny blue egg last week. I think it's just their systems going bonkers every once in awhile. I think my teeny egg came from a hen that stopped laying for about a month and this was her first egg. I've got 3 of them in my fridge...from other hens. Just can't seem to crack them open...they are so cute!
