    One of my hens decided to lay a tiny egg today I found it on he floor and there was yolk in it! Does anyone know why this might be? [​IMG][/IMG]

    Funny little Fairy Egg! I wouldn't be too concerned unless it happens all the time. The article link given you is really helpful in figuring out possible causes for some of the stranger eggs that show up.

    Thanks for joining us!
