Eggceptionally Small

Gigantic green eggs are normal around here, but we found this weird tiny little brown one in with the others.   That’s a U.S. quarter for a size comparison.  I’m sure it’s just a tiny chicken egg but it made us wonder if a dove or a quail snuck into our barn and left us a present.

    Nope. Nugget lays little white eggs.

    I just found the same in a clutch of our chicken eggs. There is a dove hanging around. I can’t find any dove eggs that are that brown color though.
