    My girls have been laying since early summer and all have been well put together eggs. Just the occasional soft shell in the very beginning. So what happened to this egg! I bet it didn't feel good coming out.

    WHOA! That's UGLY.

    I had one egg come out of a hen where the entire yolk/white/sack was OUTSIDE the shell but attached by a membrane into the shell... so weird. Chickens do weird things. Owwie.

    We were going to use it tonight... popped the top off, and as I was cracking the rest the shell seemed to fall apart from the membrane so I fed it to the dog cause I didn't want shell in what I was cooking.

    The top part was apart of the bottom and when we took it off it was like snot pulling them apart. Another Ewww with this egg. lol
