What is this mini egg??

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by hensandchickscolorado, Nov 3, 2011.

  1. My EE started laying 2 days ago. We got one normal (green!) egg yesterday and today we got two...the "normal" sized one is a bit irregularly shaped, and then there was this little mini! The brown egg is from our BR, just for reference.

    I'm assuming it's because she's just starting out, but should I be concerned?

    I found one the other day and my girls have been laying daily for months. When I cracked it open all it had in it was white no yolk. They really are funny looking compared to normal size eggs.
