Yesterday we were gone most of the day and into the early hours of the morning today. So when I went out to the coop this morning; I collected 5 eggs.
But there was something strange with one egg-- I don't know if you can tell by the photo or not; but it is oddly shaped almost flat on one side and it has 'RIPPLES' around the edges of the flat part.
When you tap on a normal egg you get a solid TAP,TAP,TAP.
Not this one. When you tap on it- you get a slightly high toned---tink,tink,tink. Like Crystal or glass for sure.
I'm not sure if it will be good to eat since the make up of the shell is different. A chickens egg is created in such a way to protect it naturally without any preservatives-- keeping the freshness locked inside, sort of like a zip lock baggie! That is why it is not recommended to wash them but to wipe them gently with a soft brush or dry cloth before storing.
- Have any of you ever seen such a thing?
- What do you suppose it means,regarding the health of my chicken?
- I need to do some research- I'm wondering if perhaps one of my chickens was 'egg bound' or what?
- I haven't cracked it yet. What do you think, would you eat it?
- Any tips or ideas?
