    My Dark Cornish has been laying for about 4 weeks now and her eggs have been medium to large. I found this in the nesting box she just left and what a suprise!! It's smaller than a golf ball and little larger than a quarter. Is this normal??

    Here it is compared to pool cue chalk and a quarter

    Around here people call them "fart eggs" cause they just farted them out [​IMG] It's normal to get those from time to time, even experienced layers will lay small ones or double yolkers every now and then.
