    We should compare our Teeny Eggs!
    See who's got the cutest!
    I'll start:
    This is an Araucana "virgin egg" I found last month -

    So cute!
    Did ya know? You can just let them sit, someplace safe, and the "insides" will eventually dry up. I have a basket of tiny Auracana eggs from my pullets.

    I do that too, Motherhen. Some of them do turn a different color, though.

    Motherhen... it's sorta like saving something from when yer kids are babies - isn't it? LOL!
    I've gotten to where I aspirate the insides of an egg out with a large syring, rinse it out, and then backfill it with a runny plaster of paris. I fill it till it overflows, then whipe off the excess that bubbles out the hole. Then I set it "upright" overnight. [​IMG]

    I had one hen that layed a string of them this spring, but they all came from a Jersey, so they all look like banty eggs.

    How about the weirdest egg? Shame, I broke it trying to blow it out. [​IMG]

    Now that is weird! Alien egg![​IMG]
    Your hen must have had a hard time with that egg.

    Newbies note: eggs are soft and slimey when they first come out then harden in just a bit.

    Probably not. It was only about 2 inches long.
