    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.

    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.
