    So this morning, I go out and feed, gather the eggs.. and find. A tiny egg. Its from one of my EE's the only one who lays the bluish/green eggs. The others are all olive colored. I know there is a "term" for these but not sure what it is! I do think I will blow it out and save the shell though. And Im wanting to be sure its a fluke like I am thinking? Just a misfire somewhere maybe?

    How adorable!! Fart eggs (that's the term...lol) are always cute, but I don't think I've ever seen an EE one...
    Let us know whether it has a yolk or not...they typically don't.

    No yolk! I put a hole in the bottom and just whites in there. Its on my window sill now LOL I wondered if that is what it was, but I really was not sure.
