    A customer came in and showed me this hard boiled egg he found. (from a neighboring chicken farmer) I have never seen anything like this before. Check this out. It looks like another egg inside the egg white. I cut it open and it looks like an under developed egg. The brown shell felt rubbery too. I thought this was cool to see and thought I would share. Has anyone else ever seen anything like this before?

    He is a very faithful customer and the first words out of him was "This isn't your egg, my wife got it at another farm." Phew!!! Gross but it was neat to look at, at the same time.
