    I found this tiny egg on the poop board this morning. It is the size of a medium red grape, same color too .Is one of my hens playing an Easter egg trick on me or should I watch for a problem?[​IMG]

    I got one just like it several weeks ago. I fully expected a "fart" egg too! Imagine my surprise when my granddaughter and I cracked it into a bowl and found a perfectly formed, absolutely normal little egg inside! Too cute for words!!

    Oh that is super cute Blooie :love

    I've only ever had one but I'm not sure what was in it as I kept for as long as I could because it was so tiny. It started smelling a bit funky so I was forced to bin it. I like cute dinky/miniature things!!

    Never heard of a fart egg, thanks for the article Yorkshire Coop. After seeing Blooie's tiny egg, I broke mine open. Inside, a perfect tiny egg.[​IMG][/IMG]
