    Hi all, I'm hoping one of you can tell me what is going on with this tiny egg that was laid by my Araucana Bantam this morning. She has been laying a blue egg every other day now for a while and this morning she layed this tiny "dwarf" egg. It's as heavy as the normal sized ones and is a shade or two darker in color than the normal eggs. It's not even the size of a quarter. If I had not seen her in the nest I would have never thought it came out of her. Both her and her hen sister and the rooster are all smoothed faced and rumpless if that helps at all. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    Looks like a wind egg or they also call them fart eggs. More than likely there is nothing inside. It is just one of those things that happen sometimes.
