Shell-less Egg

Our mystery chicken laid a completely shell-less egg this week. 

That is a very soft, membrane only egg, the size of a large grape.

We dissected it, of course.



Inside, we found another membrane covered egg sac, surrounded by egg whites only.

Inside that little one, we found egg whites only.

Weird.

  1. I just read your comment saying you made the Coconut Pie and I'm glad it worked out for you. I'm planning on making one in the next few days, using coconut milk instead of the milk, because I have some I want to use up.

    Not sure where in Indiana you are, I lived for ten years in Lake Station, IN (formerly East Gary), hated all that lake effect snow!

    We had a shell-less egg from our chickens once, but it was just a regular egg inside the membrane. I didn't open the membrane, just dropped the whole thing in some boiling water and fed it to the chickens after it cooled. It just looked like a regular hard-boiled egg. I was kind of afraid to use it for human consumption but I suppose with all the boiling involved it would've been ok had I needed to.
