    Anyone ever get one of these from a standard chicken? It's about the size of a cherry tomato.
    Everyone was laying perfect eggs then yesterday someone misfired.
    Today back to normal. I can't wait to crack it open, I wonder if it has a tiny yolk?

    I think that is referred to as a 'fart egg' or 'micro egg'.
    If you use the blue search bar above with either of those terms, you'll see more pictures similar.

    Egg fart. It's so tiny, I'm surprised you found it. [​IMG]

    Awww cute, looks like a jelly bean! Yolkless fart eggs don't usually have yolks but I once found one the size of a marble, cracked it open and it had the tiniest yolk inside.
