    Wow! I have never seen one. You should do a video as you are opening it.

    I saw a video about a hen who laid an egg like that once. It had two yolks plus another egg inside! Poor hen! Is she okay? [​IMG]

    Here's the video I saw.

    She's doing great! I'm going to have to keep monitoring her since this now seems to be a normal thing for her. Oh and her last egg weighs 6.5 ounces. Ouch!!!
