There is a solid hard shelled egg inside this .....papery wrinkled layer! So bizarre! In the last two photo's you can see a tear in the outer paper wrapping and see the whole egg that is inside.

This definently classifies as our wierdest egg ever. And the hen seems fine.........hopefully she stays fine! I'll be keeping my eye on her!

Hmmm ...was the outer "giftwrap" stretchy when it came out, like an extra membrane, maybe? It's a good idea to look at her vent to make sure she didn't lose a little lining somewhere.
Definitely scores lots of weird points!

The "wrapping" was kind of damp when I found it earlier this afternoon. Now the round end has dried out and gotten hard. The pointy, wrinkly end is still kind of damp.

I'm waiting for the rest of the family to come home from a 4-H meeting as they haven't seen it yet, and then we'll unwrap it!
