    First egg, red sexlink , 2nd, OEG egg, 3rd, Fart egg? Cracked it open, and jsut egg white inside. This is the second one I found of these, with about 6 months in between.

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Wind egg is the polite term, but I have four boys, around here, Fart is an every day word, and yes, it is a Fart egg!

    You could call it a meringue egg - no worries about breaking the yolk and making your meringue fall!

    I didn't know that's what they were called! Why? I'm assuming it looks like something the hen accidentally tooted out, but if they're hardshelled they were ready to come out, right? Can somebody enlighten me on this crucial chicken egg trivia?
