    Crazy tiny egg. I only have 3 blue layers, all laying consistent nice sized eggs, usually 2/3 per day. 3 blue eggs yesterday, then this today. ??? Is there a Robin in my coop? Guess one has a hitch in her getalong. [​IMG]

    Weird. Well, some hens first eggs will be small. Then they start laying big eggs. Have any young hens that just recently started laying?

    It's an egg (usually) without a yolk, commonly called a 'fart egg' or 'fairy egg' and sometimes they just happen...

    Sometimes the first egg a small egg, and the next one a larger egg, and then the 3rd a normal sized egg.
