    now that is a cool looking egg - I would blow that out and save it !!

    the only weird one we got was really long shaped kinda like how an ice cream cone looks - still had the fat round part but it looked like it was pulled to a point ( hope that made sense LOL )
    I will try to get a pic of soon

    does your egg have a ridge? looks kinda lumpy or is it smooth ?

    Hey, unionwirewoman, what kind of chicken laid that egg? My Delawares lay similar eggs, only so far not quite so wrinkly. Often just one big wrinkle at the pointy end.

    I had an odd egg a week ago - but the shell was very thin - all the shell was on the one end - looked like it had been tied in a knot....
    I have posted a pic on the "first egg thread" should be near the last page or so as it was only a couple of days ago.... (Last post on page 14)

    Here is my only weird egg. It was the size of a quarter, had only a ring of shell, and had a funnel at the end and white was sticking out of it. It had a very small yolk.

    And how about this one? Besides being very small the darn thing goes around a corner!

    My SLW, Lorelei, laid this weird one when she was under extreme heat stress and starting a hard molt:

    The two egg/around the corner egg was never opened so I don't know what was inside. It does look like two partially completed eggs that somehow got joined together. I just let it dry up so I could save the shell. Something sure went haywire on the production line that day!
