    Here is a sample of what we collected today. We had an average white egg from our Pearl White Leghorn, a jumbo probably double yolker from our Ameracauna, and then this teensy little egg. It could be from a RIR or a Dominique. Have you ever seen anything like this before? Our girls are 5 mos old and have been laying about a month or so now. It is the size of a cocktail olive.

    That expression makes me laugh. Is this a common thing?? I want to crack it open and see whats inside, but then again, I want to save it to show friends and family who won't believe me. [​IMG]

    I had one small egg once, but when I cracked it open it had a normal sized yolk. To me, that's en extra yummy egg.

    It's the size of a cocktail olive. Do you really think it has a decent yolk in there? I'm wondering if it is a new layer. Because it is so unique, I am tempted to blow it out and put it in a shadow box with the other two for comparison.

    I had two last week! I cracked them open and they were all white - no yolk at all! I was told these were "fart" eggs and happens to new layers or old. Mine are old...

    I just googled "fart egg" and you are all correct. How funny a word! You made my day. Thanks!
