I finally have a fart egg!
I have heard others talk about chicken "fart eggs," or small eggs. Even though I have raised chickens for a while, I have not experienced the joy of the fart egg until today. The egg was so small that it did not move the scale. It only weighed .4 ounces. The middle sized egg was about 1.4 ounce and the larger egg was 2.2 ounces. I have a few Silkies, Frizzles, and Barn Yard Mix hens reaching maturity and I am not sure which hen laid this egg. The second picture shows the egg after it was cracked. The yolk is about the size of a popcorn kernel. You may notice that I stamped the eggs for the photo.
