    Sometimes "extras" get put in the egg while the hen is making it. There is nothing to worry about-she will be fine an the egg is fine to use. It is just a clitch in the process. [​IMG]

    Sometimes it happens. It really isn't unusual. It won't hurt you. Fish it out and cook the eggs. You will see lots of strange things over the years raising chickens. [​IMG]
