    I've had several eggs that small, and one that was just a tiny bit bigger than a dime once. They're pretty cool! :)

    That's not rare at all :) Young hens just starting out will lay "wind" or "fart" eggs - usually tiny things with no yolks. On the other end of the age spectrum, I just got two eggs smaller than yours from my very old hens. They're trying to lay, but not able to make a normal eggs. One looked like a speckled wild-bird's egg. Very cute.

    I got 3 little eggs over about 10 days from one of my new hens. Each egg had a tiny yolk in it.[​IMG]
