    Got this one the other day. We have a small Polish mix hen that started laying the day we brought her home. She usually lays a medium sized egg, about every other day or so.
    One day last week she left this one behind: I wish I had one of her normal ones to compare to.

    There was a small hole pecked in one end, almost like she was trying to break it to get it out??

    There was nothing leaking out of the egg, so I figured either it could be an egg within an egg, or the membrane wasn't broken. We took it inside and cracked it right away....

    I'm in the season only a month and this is what I've gotten in the last two weeks. There were 18 more before this, they were eaten.

    Out of 6 hens, 5 eggs a day, at least. 3 in the morning and two later in the day. The kids love collecting eggs.

    The eggs taste great I'm setting them out for a few days before they go in the fridge, the kids are getting used to the taste and darker yellow color when scrambled.
