    I have 4 Barred rocks all about a year and a half old. Good layers. Today I found a tiny egg that one had laid, we have never had this happen. Is this normal? Anyone else have these?

    I think they are called "fart eggs" at least thats what I was told. I had a red sex link that laid one a couple times a year. Most of the time, she would lay another, normal one the same day.

    Fart eggs, funny! It just caught me by surprise. The hen who laid it usually has the largest eggs of the bunch. I can't wait to get home from work and see what else was laid.

    Most don't have yolks but once in a great while mine have yolks.

    I will have to see if it has a yoke. I left it on the kitchen counter this morning. My 7 year old daughter is going to love it I think.
