Collecting eggs tonight and I find this on the ground right in front of the door to the coop. Looks like just a teeny tiny chicken egg. What do you all think?

It's a WINDus egg!

Fairy, fart, wind, rooster eggs are usually from a tiny piece of tissue breaking loose from the reproductive tract, or an immature ova(yolk) and the body forms an egg around it. Color can be darker than 'normal' as the pigment coating released has to cover a much smaller area so is thicker. Can happen with any age layer.
Think it's explained in this excellent video
Egg Formation Video
(which is worth watching even if it doesn't)
