    Hello friends!
    I'm here to ask about your successes with tiny eggs. I have a chicken egg in the incubator and its so small! Much smaller then the rest. It looks like it's developing just fine so far, but if it makes it to hatch, it'll be one tiny chicken.

    I wanted to ask about your successes with your smallest eggs, if you have any, and whether or not there are any cautionary tales you have.

    Photo's of your tiniest chicks are welcome too ;)

    TIA!

    hello. probably it wont hatch. if its a fart egg ( means like a very small egg, size of thumb) then it will never hatch. about what size is it?

    Very tiny eggs aren't likely to hatch all. It really depends on the size of the egg, though. I don't put small eggs in the bator as there isn't much point. I do get the odd small chick sometimes- they always grow just like the rest ;)

    Not a fart egg, just a smaller egg. Here’s some photos! 5DAD122B-FBE8-405C-8598-98DAF0703612.jpeg 6753FF1E-5B60-49F6-92CC-5255CD7E33F3.jpeg
    My hands are... really small. But still this egg isn’t ridiculously small. It’s just by far the clear smallest one.

    That's a fine size. I'm sure it'll hatch (assuming it's fertile). Good luck :D

    Thank you! And it is! It’s growing so good but it just looks like there’s not AS much room to grow so I was worried about it.
