    Tonight when I went to collect eggs I had two fart eggs in the same nest box. One is very tiny, the tiniest I have ever seen. Here is a picture with a dime.

    I have had a lot of fart (wind) eggs over the years too, but never as tiny as the one I found yesterday. The other egg in the picture is a regular size fart (wind) egg, the size that I usually find. Here a few pictures of some of the fart (wind) eggs I have collected in the past. Click on any image to make it larger.

    That is a good analogy. That is exactly the size, like a jelly bean... [​IMG]

    One of our Banties just produced a delightful fairy egg - she spent a long time painting it, the colour is so intense. The strange thing is that she produced a normal sized egg the previous day (both green eggs in the box are hers)

    These girls never cease to fascinate me!
