Hi All,

I cracked an egg today and to my surprise these extra bits came out! To my eye they look like embryos but it can't be as our chooks are in a huge but enclosed coop (to keep safe from foxes) and we don't have a rooster. The egg was quite long, and a bit bigger than usual. I thought it might be a double yolker before I cracked it as it was large but it wasn't.

Does anyone know what this is? We're in Australia so in the height of Summer, if that's relevant.

Thanks!

X2 above. You don’t often see those in grocery store eggs because they candle and remove those during processing, many people find them unappetizing because they think it is an embryo, rest assured it is not.
