Strange Egg

May 22nd, 2010 by Editor B

We found this anomaly at our local grocery store. Ever seen an egg shaped like this before?

Strange Egg

Both ends are the same size!

Such eggs would have put an end to the war in Lilliput.

    Looks like the Little-Endians won. A grande triumph for Protestant England.

    I don’t see you as a white egg kinda guy B, what gives? As the animal lover I know you are, you should really look into farm eggs, or at minimum cage free. While I am a dedicated meat eater, I do care about how my prey is treated.

    Strangely perceptive, Lee. Indeed we have gone for brown eggs exclusively for many years, even though I know there’s no real difference. I just like the way they look. Speckled eggs are even cooler, but I don’t see those at the grocery. Even these whites are cage free, though.

    If I’d known such interesting deformities were hiding amongst the white eggs, I might have bought them more often.

    I saw eggs like this at Wegman’s (a grocery store) in NJ. Super strange! I kept looking through cartons to find typical looking eggs. Also, I am long time reader. I have family in Mobile and Westwego. I found your blog from NPR!

    The color of the egg depends on what kind of chicken laid it and has nothing to do with the chicken’s food source.
