I got an egg from my hens yesterday that rattled around in the shell, well maybe not rattled but you could hear and feel something flopping back and forth in the shell. I wasn't brave enough to crack it and find out what was in it, anyone have any ideas?

Well that was anticlimactic, it was just regular egg white and yolk in there. A slightly larger yolk than usual but I think what made it shake was the huge air pocket that took up a quarter of the inside of the egg. I've never seen an air pocket that big, especially in a fresh egg!

ETA: it made my dog's day though. I didn't want to waste the now opened egg so I cooked it up and fed it to him.
