So what was it??. OK I'm a novice at all this. We've had the hens about 6 months and all seems to be fine, all laying up a storm. We don't have a rooster but there are always male pheasants lurking about. Could it have been a 'fart egg'? or was it a pheasants egg in our coop? Do pheasants cross with hens? I didn't think they could? We've had just whites tiny eggs before a couple of times. Also one of our hens seems to lay two tone eggs. i.e dark brown at one end and pale brown at the other. Is this like 'normal'??
