Reverand Donnie Russell believes he may have found the world's smallest chicken egg.
The tiny egg measures just 2.1 centimetres long and weighs 3.46 grams. While it hasn't yet been officially confirmed as the smallest egg it is smaller than the current Guiness World Record holder of 2.7 centimetres. "When you see something like that, you wonder how in the world did that ever happen?" says Mr Russell.
A West Virginia man is laying claim to one of the world's smallest chicken eggs. Whether it's a record remains to be seen. The Reverand Donnie Russell said he found the egg last month on his farm.

Geez, at that size, I don't think the chicken even noticed if she laid one or not.

Yes, but is it viable, or just an anomaly? That should count for something. Shouldn't really count if it's just a ball of calcium. Not to put to fine a point on it or take away from the find. Am I making any sense? Probably not.

Am I making any sense? Probably not. I agree, if it's only calcium it wouldn't strictly be an egg and it shouldn't be in the running for World's Smallest "Egg"...

Ive a feeling I have seen.... and eaten smaller, usually when a hen lays her first egg it will be very small, complete with white and yolk.

Could it have been laid by a small bird finch etc that had landed in the chicken run?
