Abnormal egg
« on: November 15, 2016, 07:12:42 pm »
A question about eggs - gave a friend a box of new laid eggs (yesterdays and todays) and she has just used some for her tea. Inside one of them - in the white - was a large brown lump of something - not a blood speck - almost 1cm across. From what she's described it's not something I've come across before - any ideas what it might be please? (she didn't eat the egg!)

Do you have a young hen? Sometimes the egg production system isn't mature enough and a bit of blood or tissue is included in the egg white. Do you have a cockerel? Could it be a fertilised egg?

As Possum says, and unlikely to recur in future.  I, too, wouldn't have eaten the egg, though!
