A wooden bowl and a tiny egg

My brother is disgustingly talented- he sees something he thinks he'd like to try and he goes for it, usually doing a great job. His latest interest is turning bowls from blocks of wood. His first bowl is made from tupelo poplar and while not perfect (handmade should not be) it's eye catching. He gave it to me and the eggs look really good in it.

the wood grain just pops and notice anything not like the others?

I have read about chickens laying "fart" eggs- very small eggs that usually do not have a yolk. This is our first such egg. I am going to blow it out and save it. I'll bet whoever laid it appreciated the size break! Since it's green it was either Emma, Harriet or Lydia.
