Strange Chicken yoke!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

What in the world is this?  I have never seen anything like what's on the yoke of this chicken egg!  I know that on Mother's Day 2016 while visiting me, my daughter,  son-in-law and I was shocked to look as one of my guineas roosters mounted and appeared to inseminate one of my chicken hens.  While not knowing which hen laid this egg I collected about 4 days after the Mother's Day incident,  this is what I found when I crack the egg to use.  Pic is not great, sorry, but it was somewhat gritty, wet powdery in texture.  And no, I didn't use it!    Anyone know what this thing is?  Thanks!

Most likely just a meat spot...  http://www.thepoultrysite.com/publications/1/egg-quality-handbook/29/meat-spots/

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.
