huge freak egg

November 16, 2009

the one on the right is a normal sized chicken egg

Gathering up the eggs one night I found this thing sitting in a nest box.  The one on the right is a regular sized egg.  When hens first start laying, all sorts of weird things can happen.  I cracked it open and there was another softer egg shell inside and a really watery yolk inside that.  I couldn’t bring myself to eat it though, it was just to strange.

    Whoa! We got a giant egg like that, too, but haven’t had the heart to even crack it open. It’s too precious!

    Wonder what would have happened if it had been fertilized and hatched? Two-headed chick?
