All right, its just a weird year all the way around! The egg on the right is the one I found in the hen nest today. The one on the left is from yesterday! Quite a difference! I've never seen one that small. Some of the pullet eggs are strangely shaped and smaller than normal...... but not like this! This egg isn't even as large as the yolk usually is.
Anyone out there with more "egg-xperience" care to comment? I'd love to know what causes something like this!
And "yes", I'm going to take a photo of it when I crack it open. Will be sharing that in the days to come.
