    I don't, because I don't have a cute tiny hen.

    But I saw this in the Chinese news today and wondered if this is totally normal for tiny bantam hens or if it's actually noteworth-ily small.

    So can I see some pictures of tiny eggs (and birds that made them) for comparison??
    Also if you have tiny eggs, what do you do with them?

    We get teeny tiny eggs like that sometimes, and we have all large fowl, large egg-laying breeds. Ours are like a little reproductive oops.
