    I think it was my Wellsummer who laid this egg yesterday.
    The egg on the left is normal.
    The egg on the right is a little bigger than a Robin's egg.
    Any thoughts?

    It's what is known as a 'fart' egg. Perhaps they result from some glitch in the egg formation cycle. Generally more common at the start or end of an egg laying cycle it is nothing to be concerned about.
