    Can someone give me insight to why my little banty was laying regular eggs (first pic) and then I found this tiny egg today (second pic)?

    Looks like it could be a fart-egg.

    She has been laying for about a month and it's the only one so far. Thanks for the link.

    It's just a mis-fire of her reproductive organs. Totally normal.

    That's kinda big for a fart egg, but darned close. My turken lays small eggs. Of course she is no bigger than a minute.
