This is a double yolk 3 7/8 oz egg. The thing is HUGE!!! It fills the palm of my hand!

My question is what is that 'crack' line in the middle. It looks like it is a fuse of 2 eggs together.

Is this normal? Should I expect it to happen again?

Wow! That is one huge egg! It does look like two eggs fused together. Maybe your chicken "misfired"! I've had double-yolkers before, but never with the line, like that.

Very cool!

Do you know which of your chickens laid it? I'd guess it's the one whose eyes are watering!

Ouch....really looks like 2 'wanna-be' eggs fused neatly. Hey, it happens in people.....Is it a double yolker? I guess double yolkers/large eggs happen occasionally, have not seen one with a distinct line in the shell like that though...Pretty neat!

Hey, is this part of "Candid Coopery<' it's s trick egg right - glued together - we can see the line.

Just kidding, I wonder if you have an Emu leaving eggs behind.
