    I got this egg out of a carton of eggs from Costco, brown organic eggs.
    I have never seen one look like this, the poor hen!

    send a pic to the organic company .They need to look into it .I have seen eggs that carried disease like that and spread them to other chickens .It was on a farm show here that is televised here in VA .The farm had to shut down and kill a lot of it's chickens .If it is the same could be a problem and not sure how the quality control let it pass .We have 2 big chicken farms here in the county I live in .

    It looks like it could be some kind of "rubber egg" or shell-less egg.

    Not necessarily, sometime it's just that a new hen's system has not fully matured! :)

    If it was a turtle egg, I'd say it was dehydrated.

    Thanks for all the info! It is still in the refrigerator, the shell is hard, have not been brave enough to crack it. Dear hubby thought it was rotten.
    Post them, I love JW's gifs. I had some of photobucket, been too busy to down load them now that you can't use photobucket without paying.
