    This egg came out of my silver seabrite coop today. All the hens have been laying normal, then I find this today. Not sure what hen laid it. In the picture there is a dime next to the egg.

    Is it normal for them to have an odd egg every once in awhile?

    Do you think the egg would be hatchable?

    i have eggs like that too. they are called wind eggs and they are usally laid for a first or last egg. many years ago farmers belived they were laid by roosters because they were so small and called them cock eggs. to answer your question,if you candle the egg i think you will find there is no yolk inside and therefor no baby but stranger things have happened. i have hatched really small eggs as an experiment and i had to help them hatch .
