    I got this egg on Saturday.

    It does have a very thin outer shell with just the membrane covering the top. I didn't break it open, but it does seem like it had a yolk. Looked perfectly normal except it was missing a top. I have 16 chickens who just started to lay about 2 weeks ago. I've had a couple of soft shelled, but this takes the cake [​IMG]

    Eeewww. I think of the sound that must have made when it came out.

    Ignore me, I think everything has a soundtrack.

    So the yolk wouldn't come out if you tipped it over?
