  2. We have had a couple like that over the years, then back to normal, something just doesn't form right.

    1. Sunnybrook Farm - It's almost like they started to lay an egg, and then something else got their attention and they forgot what they started to do!

  7. Now that is one small egg. Is it normal inside, like does it have a yolk?

    2. Sparkless - It sure would have been cool if it had had a yolk. I would have had to fry it up and take a picture of it next to a strip of bacon for size comparison!

  8. I got one that small but it was hard as a rock. There was no cracking that egg to see if it had a yolk. Lucky that was a one time deal for us so far.

    1. Michelle - Over the years, we've gotten small, not quite normal eggs but never one this perfectly shaped and SO small.

    1. Endah - Can you imagine if that egg had been viable . . . the little chick to hatch out would be about the size of a grasshopper!

    1. Little Homestead - Yep, I was wishing I had one of those occasional ginormous eggs to put compare it to. My little teeny-weenie egg would have looked even smaller!
