    Hello,

    I am writing about The egg.
    I want to learn more, so it is like an info chart.
    And it will be about each step an egg goes through.

    I have a few questions that I would like answered.
    My first few questions are...

    What is an egg shell made out of?
    Also, what is the word for the shell being made inside the hen?

    I hope these don't sound like stupid questions!
    Still, I am learning terms for things with the egg...

    And chickens!

    All I know so far is; Embryo, shell, veins...
    What else? Yolk, whites.

    Thank you guys, your always so helpful!
    And I hope these are normal questions!

    I have more, first I'll see the answers to these!
    Thanks!

  2. I'm not sure if the eggshell is completely composed of this - but there's a lot of calcium in them. Not sure about the second question though. They're not stupid questions at all, you've got me curious now :p
