Now I was thinking this has got to be wrong because all my girls are way past poop egg stage - youngest will be 2 in June!!!!!!
While I was pondering this - this turned up!!!!!

It is the size of a sparrow egg - How can I find an egg cup to fit that??????????????

I mean I would be hard pushed to fit it in an upturned thimble!!!!! See it up against a "real egg"

wow-- interesting eggs. If you are sure that it is from your chicken and not a sparrow---go for the Guiness Book of World Records for smallest egg. LOL!

Seriously---- could it be something nutritional? Feed? worms? Hope you get a good answer to your mystery!

This is amusing---I said Guiness before I even realized you were in Ireland. ;O)

Oh - I just thought I wonder if we have Leprechaun chickens in Ireland??????? I guess they would be green so I should have found the miniture chicken by now???

They are my chicken eggs!!!!!!! and they get Layers pellets from the feed store and free range and get loads of veg and bread and all sorts. They have the run of the yard right now and are clearing the veg bays! They are all fat and healthy looking but some are just comming out of the molt.
