    Mine seem fine. There wasnt even any blood on the egg. (which shocked the heck out of me) I was very suprised with this egg. I have had some big ones this year, but this one takes the cake. Funny thing though, the other big ones were nearly this size and only had one yold, LARGE yolk. I decided to take pis of this one, measurements and everything. My little one was totally fascinated by the big egg as well.
