Would this be one of our chooks laying a tiny egg due to heat stress? The picture shows a 56g egg and this tiny egg. It has a few calcium deposits on it and a few spots that look like the eggs that our Pullet 'Caramello' lays who's eggs are normally 55-60g egg.

The small egg was found on the dirt in the back yard - just as you exit the chicken yard.

We let our chooks out of their yard into our back yard most days - but they normally go back and lay in the nesting boxes - never out on the soil.

Just curious.
Cheers,
Col.

It is called a fart egg common in chooks who have started to lay common in pullets just starting out.Not an issue unless it occurs constantly.
