    Default Man makes a baffling discovery inside an egg

    There's no question, that's an eggceptional breakfast.

    YouTube user Sean Wilson's video in which he cracks a 6-ounce egg has been viewed half a million times. Wilson says the egg measures almost 10 inches around and it came from his chicken. He weighs the egg on camera and compares it visually to normal eggs, then prepares to crack it for a sandwich. To his amazement, one yolk pops out along with another full egg in a shell.

    He's flabbergasted by the discovery.

    Biggest Chicken Egg in the World, Maybe ????? - YouTube

    New Scientist dedicated a video to explaining this rare phenomenon a few years ago. The curator of the Natural History Museum's egg collection (it's real) said it can happen when an egg is trying to make its break to the outside world. The egg descends the oviduct as it develops. However, if a chicken has abnormal contractions that push the egg back up the oviduct, another egg can develop around the first and voila you have a neatly packaged double omelette.

    I suspect the surprise is less pleasant for the chicken.

    Well, that does seem a bit uncomfortable for the chicken. Other than that, it's kind of cool.

    Call me a cynical fuckface but it looked like he was hiding the other egg in his hand.

    ^ yeah, me too. It looks staged. The whole effort doing a video of how you are doing a big egg sandwich? Don't believe it.

    Looks real to me. The second egg is wet with the white of the other egg and his hands are dry. One of my employees has chickens and said she has seen this happen before. Her eggs are all a turquoise color because of the kind of chickens she has. They taste the same but it's still weird because the eggs look like they were colored for Easter.

    Today I used two peppers for stir fry and both had a tiny pepper inside of them hanging from the stem, same idea as the egg.
