A person named Cookie Smith got an egg inside of another egg--- this news article gives some explanations...it would be nice for some statistics. e.g. weight, type of hen...etc.


"Oh my word," Smith remarked to the Abilene Reporter News journalist as a complete egg slid out of the cracked shell, along with a bright yellow yolk and slippery white. "Would you look at that?"
Researchers say this kind of "double egg" is relatively rare and forms when "unusual contractions" force a developing egg traveling down an oviduct to move back into the ovary, where it is surrounded by another egg. Then, the concentric eggs are delivered as one, the Austin Statesman reported.

Experts said the eggs were probably safe to eat, but Smith and her husband, Leonard, declined.
"No way. It may be fine, but it's a mutant egg," she told the Abilene Reporter News. "Its DNA may be messed up or something."
