    I had one like that. The way it blow it out is use some like a ice pick and on each end keep turning till you get a hole in each end then over the sick blow from the top hole and the yolk and white will come out the hole on the bottom If it doesnt come out make the hole a little larger in the bottom.

    I've blown out 30 duck eggs in one day..Boy was I out of breathe..lol..I used a needle to start a hole and then take a drill bit and twist it in my fingers untill the egg has a hole in it. Done the same on the other side.

    You can also use a syringe with a needle on it. Extend the plunger portion and suck in air. Stick the needle part into the egg at the bottom and push the air into the egg. By pushing air into the eggshell with the syringe you will build up pressure inside the eggs shell. Then pull the syringe out and the pressure in the egg will force the liquid part of the egg out of the tiny hole made by the needle. Repeat these steps over and over until the entire yolk and white have been forced out.

    I've found this to be the best way to blow an egg, without putting multiple holes in the shell....

    ***Dont build up TOO much pressure or use TOO LARGE of a syringe. Too much pressure will explode the egg.
