    I found the tiniest egg in the nest box this morning. It was perfectly round and about the size of a marble. [​IMG] (I took a picture with my phone, but my phone is being ornery and I can't get the picture trasfered to the computer.) It weighed 8 grams (1/4 of an ounce!) I assumed there would be no yolk, but it had a tiny yolk in it, too! [​IMG]

    It is probably a "wind" egg, A.K.A a fart egg. It is funny to find those though. [​IMG]

    I had one and cracked it open, but no yolk. It looked like a tiny white pancake when it was cooked.

    I didn't cook mine... it kind of weirded me out! [​IMG] I just cracked it open to see if there was a yolk, then it went down the sink. I like to get the occaisional strange egg, but I don't eat them. (Except the double yolkers... I eat those.) I should have cooked this one, though... it would've been like a Barbie breakfast!
