            The egg looks like it has the surface of a distant planet Lolli lol!
            Poor hen, she must of needed a lie down after laying that one.
            Interesting what stress can do isn't it?

                Honey is my Old English Game Bantam. She is just getting into the swing of this years laying. I spotted her "sitting" a couple of times, just must have been wind.
                Then she presented me with this effort .... (from left to right: standard, medium sized egg, bantam egg and Honey's!)

                The winds must have shocked it out of her because it is no bigger than my thumb nail :heehee:

                For perspective, this is Honey beside Buffy (May 2014) ...

                And here is Honey standing alone and proud (May 2014) ...
