Very weird egg

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I could not find a good forum for this, so here goes. A friend asked me what was up with this egg. This is a grocery store egg, so chick isn't an option. Any ideas?

Chalazae probably.  That's a big example of it, but I wouldn't have a guess as to what else it could be...

Whoa...really strange!!

 

Hopefully it's just 'membrane gone really awry'.

 

Maybe over twisted membrane(which is how the chalazae is formed) that broke free?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
