Okay, someone in our local bird fanciers forum asked about this and having done chickens since I was just a little girl and never seen this (being 51 now) I was thinking I maybe should ask the experts. It seems well this is what she wrote: "Hi all, a woman i work with handed me a twist tie and told me she found it in one of the chicken eggs she bought from me. i had never seen the black plastic twist tie before and I am baffled as to how it could have gotten in the egg. She swears it was in it, she cracked it into a bowl and stated it was inside the yolk. After reviewing chicken anatomy i just don't understand how a twist tie could get into an egg, even if the chicken decided the twist tie was a tasty tidbit to eat. Granted the egg comes out the same hole as poop, but the egg is usually fully formed by the time it gets there. I have found nothing on the internet that states how this could happen and a talked to a state vet that said he didn't believe it. anyone else ever have something pop up in an egg....other than a chick???" I am of the opinion that the woman had a twist tie in the bowl and missed it. I can't see it ending up in the egg but I really would like to see what everyone else thinks of this. Any thoughts? Laurie in Vermont think spring!
