    That's the craziest thing I've ever seen!! [​IMG] But to answer your question, yes. You can get all kind of odd looking eggs from a first time layer!! Good luck!!

    Well you should have seen my face when I picked it up!! [​IMG] It looks like another egg was going to develop and didn't get seperated... I dunno its gross and squishy on that end (like soft to the touch) [​IMG] I don't think I'm going to eat it...
