    I blew out the yolk and white from the large egg in the photo. I was surprised to find that there is another egg in there and am not sure how to get that out without breaking the whole egg open. Anyone ever get an egg inside an egg?
  2. Have heard of it, and have seen postings here on the forum about this.............

    I don't think you will be able to extract the inner egg with out cutting the shell of the outter egg. Some fancy egg carvers use dremmel tool, maybe you could slice completely around the outter egg, and keep it mostly intact to rejoin.

    You do have a rarety on your hands (in your hands).... :O)

    I have a Delaware hen that has laid 4 of these last fall/winter. luckily, she seems to have sorted herself out now.... I'm not sure how you would get the inner egg out without damaging the outer shell. Pictures may be the way to save it for posterity...
