    well...unless you try to hatch the egg, I suppose it will remain a mystery. [​IMG]

    Light tan and small reminds me of a silkie egg.​

    well i did put it in a homemade incubator and i candled it today and there are veins it ... that would be awesome if it was a silkie and it does hatch, but i kind of feel bad because i dont know whose it was or how it got there.

    Well...a chicken probably plopped down and laid it... [​IMG] I am totally kidding, of course.

    Dont feel too bad. The first (and last) time I went to a chicken show, my 4-year-old was running around being crazy. I spent so much time trying to get him to use his "inside voice" didn't notice he had filled my purse with lost eggs until *splat!* it was too late.

    I found this site helpful for egg identification.
