    That is what they call a wind, fart, fairy or some other silly name egg. They often have no yolk.

    Its the dark red thing under the coin. It looks like its sitting in a little salt bowl.

    I think the smallest one I ever got was about the size of a quarter. Its amazing I even saw it it was so tiny.

    What is so weird is how perfect they are. I should have figured out a way to keep the one I found.

    Silly me I guess it just took me a while to figure out what that was. I didn't pay enough attention to your demonstration of the egg Under the coin. How funny!

    Trust me, it took a moment to realize it too. It was the breed of hen that had me finally realizing it was under the coin.

    Small eggs are just so cool. I have a couple who lay small ones every once and a while.

    Never had a brown one that small.... my wind eggs always seemed to be white.... I started collecting them to make earrings. :rolleyes: They are fun little things aren't they?
