    Someone, other than myself, must find this funny!!! This EE has only been laying for a couple of weeks. I got a second "bonus" egg from her today.

    I just love looking at those little bitty "fart" eggs!!! About 2 months ago I had a little fart egg in my nest boxes right next to a HUGE egg that topped out my egg scale to I put it on my kitchen scale and it weighed 3.8oz. WOW!! I guess she was making up for the little ones lacking!!! :)

    [​IMG]I am just curious if anyone else consistantly gets these tiny eggs. I have a dozen bantam sebright hens that will soon be a year old. About a week ago one of them has started laying these tiny eggs. They are about the size of your thumb nail. The one photo shows a average Leghorn egg, a standard bantam egg and our "Tiny Egg"[​IMG]

    Whoa, what a cute, weird little thing! Maybe she was throwing out the old 'leftovers'.

    deserthotwings - my uncle has an OEG hen and he says her eggs are consistently the size of robin eggs. I would think that it's normal, but if she's been laying for a while already, then it does make me wonder if she has some kind of health thing going on. I'm no expert, so don't take my word for it.

    Just give her some time. She'll probably lay bigger eggs in a little while. lol
