    My neighbors EE is always laying something different,. shell-less eggs,. rubbery shelled eggs and the pretty marbled egg on our BYC Mobile Fertilizers page


    But this is her first encapsulated egg.

    It had two complete membranes around it that were filled with clear goo.

    It had a nice shell under all that stuff.

    Oh that is so weird!
    My best guess is that perhaps the egg has the start of a second shell on it that just never fully finished?
