    So I just got home today and went to collect my eggs out of under Nugget and found this bizarre looking egg. Now I grew up with chickens and I have seen double yolked eggs, tripled yolked eggs, an egg in an egg, a soft shelled etc. But I have never seen this ever in my life. It was laid by my EE Rose, who is going through a molt right now....I dont know if that has anything to do with it but any ideas? She has been laying since August of last year. So yea if anyone has any idea please let me know? Is it something she is lacking in her diet? She has always laid perfect eggs.

    It kind of looks like the lining of the egg shell. Its like a dried umbilical cord...so weird

    Abnormally normal. I would consider it a body check egg. It indicates nothing in particular. She's fine. Paint it pink, give it a couple ears and a snout and call it "Piggy".
