    Wow, out of all the eggs we've had, I've never gathered one like that! Pretty bizarro. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi,

    Looks like a soft-shelled egg (with just a membrane around it, no shell) that got kind of "stretched" as she was trying to get it out. One of my hens did something similar but there were actually TWO of them attached together! Thankfully, it never happened again! [​IMG] Genie
