    From a hen that hasnt laid an egg in alittle over 3 months, guess her body has to get back into the groove.

    Whoa. That's a little bit grody. Awesome egg though. Probably should have blown it out and kept the shell.

    Thanks Everyone...

    Mahonri: Yes the whole white part was bloody and had a huge meat spot in it... I guess cause she hasnt laid an egg in over 3 months?

    ZombieChickens: That would have been a good idea but I was hoping to eat it this mornin... I threw it out.

    What breed is the hen? My CornishX would lay a double yolk-er every once in a while.
