What on earth is laying these tiny eggs?

I have a serama but surely this is too small for even her. I would guess an egg fart but I'm getting one almost every day. I'm showing the ones from today and yesterday next to one of my regular eggs. Any guesses? I wonder if a wild bird is going into my coop and laying these eggs. I thought about putting them in my incubator, but if wild babies hatch, they'll just die.

I've heard them called "fart eggs"; small little eggs, usually laid without a yolk, and often by pullets as they refine their egg laying techniques. I've only had one, and it was from an Speckled Sussex just starting to lay.

When my girls was just starting to lay, I would get one like that each day but its been a long time now since I have had any of those.

I've gotten two of these teeny eggs when my girls were new to laying. They are cute. I kept them as decoration - one in a nest by a birdhouse and one under a chicken statue decoration. hee hee. There haven't been any more since.
