    Hi all! I usually lurk, but, I had to share the first egg my black sex link hen laid.

    She's laying normal eggs now, but, I thought this was pretty cool looking and wanted to share it. :)

    It was the strangest thing. My mom said she saw one like this when she was a little girl, but the "tail" wasn't nearly so long. It reminded me of those water yo-yos they used to sell at the festivals when I was a kid, lol. [​IMG]

    I opened it up later, it was normal on the inside.

    The whole egg and tail were both squishy and soft.
