A Guiness World Record?

Could this be the worlds smallest chicken egg?

I reckon it must be close since on the internet the record of the smallest chicken egg that I could find is
2.7 cm.  And at 14 grams that is pretty small.  I wonder if there is any speck of yolk?

  1. Ah I had one of these last year. Apparently they're called fairy eggs. I blogged about it too http://veggiegobbler.blogspot.com.au/2011/09/teeniest-chook-egg-ever-laid-in.html. And then I contacted the local papers! And several journalists wanted to come and interview me and take a photo! But then I got cold feet and felt embarrasses at the thought of being known as the teen egg lady. Will you see what's in it? Mine had no yolk.

    1. Yes VG I remember now. I am not sure I will be calling the paper either.

  2. Haha cute, it would look adorable as a fried egg on toast although you may want something extra on the side!

  3. ooooh fairy eggs, that's so cute. Was it from a pullet (first egg) or an old hen after molting?

  4. I had a couple of those last year as well, no yolk, just egg whites, it's very cute when they lay those.
