You Won't See This in the Store

My four hens share a communal egg nest - their choice.  This is what I found in the nest tonight:

Actually, just the green Aricauna egg and the little one.  The other two are there to show that it's the little Leghorn egg that's a fluke.  A mistake.  And because I had to know, I broke it open:

No yolk.  That's all albumen - the white part.  So it was never a potential chicken.  I'm disappointed.  The thought of tiny little eggs hatching tiny little chickens is just too cute!
