    Here it is next to a quarter, a large store egg, and a tape measure... it had the tiniest little yolk I've ever seen. Smaller than a pencil eraser. It was so cool!

    And here it is before cracking, with homegrown eggs gathered the same day.

    That's a very cute egg!! I always thought, however, that a wind egg was one with either nothing in it, or just "white"- this looks like a perfect tiny egg-- which is pretty normal for young hens just laying. I'm no expert though- and it's adorable [​IMG]

    Wind eggs are yolkless. You got a tiny hiccup egg. [​IMG]

    it seems just a few weeks ago they were called "fart" eggs. When did they turn to "Wind" eggs?

    For the less rude and crude they have always been wind eggs.

    Fart is such a rude, crude, nasty word.
