    I am new to chickens and am enjoying my early experience. This egg was laid yesterday by one of our RIRs. Is an egg so oddly shaped common? Thanks.

    Wow! THAT IS A BAZAR shape! If you haven't already, you should look at the education part of BYC. There is an excellent article about egg abnormalities. I don't recall seeing an egg like yours in it but it might. At any rate it's a very interesting read.
