Wanna see something gross?

We've gotten some pretty freaky eggs in the past, but this is one of the most memorable for sure.


I believe this atrocity was made by Peggy-O. It seems to be a tiny, miniature egg attached to a regular sized egg by a squishy little ... umbilical cord? Horrific.

Really? What the heck? I have so many things I could say about that....

Thanks to this, eggs are out for breakfast. I read something somewhere about wrinkled eggs happening because of a calcium deficiency.

OMG!

(I found your blog through Google Reader blog search)

That came inside an eggshell?

I am learning about chick development in biology right now, but that is gross, yet strangely awesome

Ohhhh!!!! That is the coolest thing I've seen in a while. I just want to hold it in my hand! (how weird is that?!) ;-0

Twisted but cool! I have chickens and have never had anything like that before...thank goodness! Thanks for sharing, I think

Bobbi said...

Ewwww, are you near a power plant or something, lol.

Okay... you have GOT TO get that thing to your local farm extension office. I've been around chickens most of my life and never found anything like that it a nest. Gross indeed!

AHHHHH!

I forsee nightmares tonight.

Hilarious.

Of course nothing beats reaching into a nesting box in the dark and GRABBING something like that...

It just needs a little extra salt!

our friend Ben said...

Eeewwww, yucko! We've had some soft eggs, but nothing like this one. I'm with Bobbi on this! (Or perhaps it's an alien. Maybe you should box it up and ship it to Roswell just in case!)

Jessica said...

Yup, way grosser than the shell-less eggs we occasionally get.

ewwww..... that's so gross looking!! I never really stopped to consider that eggs don't come out as expected sometimes... was it in a shell, or was it just like that straight from the chicken?

meg's mom said...

Yuck!! Have her subsequent eggs been normal?
