A few weeks ago I gathered an unusual egg on my regular rounds. It was in a nesting box with two other eggs.
It was quite a handful.
I weighed it.
It would not fit into an egg carton but since Saturday Market was the next day I thought it would be fun to take it along to put on my table. I carefully packed it up. It was quite a conversation piece. There was much speculation as to what might be inside. I told my customers that I would check when I got home. Many thought that it would at least be a double yolked egg. Little did we know.
The shell was fairly substantial but I was careful when I broke it. The large egg contained a normal yolk & white along with another intact egg. I removed the whole egg, dried it off & weighed it.
The intact egg from the inside of the gigantic egg weighed 2.2 oz. so it would have been sorted out as an extra large egg. And I did check this egg as well, finding that it contained a perfectly normal yolk & white. It sure would have been funny if it had contained a small egg inside.
