Davie, can't say I have seen it with hens eggs, but used to see it with pheasant eggs in the laying pens, double yokers, eggs laid without shell, misshapen eggs, eggs as small as a marble etc. etc.
Your photo, apart from the size would think its a double yoker, shows what looks like an uneven finish, calcium problem? laid before it was fully formed?
Not that sure of cause but its not that uncommon.
Boggy can I eat it or should I lob it at the anti,s lol
Mine tend to lay these funny looking ones either through lack of grit or there first egg of the season thats my theory.
Still taste great.
on our chicken farm new layers always produce double yokers for the first month then they settle into laying normal eggs, get it cracked open it will be fine,atb wayne

We get the occasional one. They have a thinner shells but tastes as good.
