    Quote:I have three that I thought I would blow out but never got around to doing it... that was years ago...still have them... because the shells are pourous I figure they are all dry inside by now... hope they never break.

    ok now I got my 2nd egg 2 days later and its even smaller then the 1st egg. is this normal? I didn't think they could get any smaller. she is a small pullet and I did expect small eggs but not sparrow eggs.
