but this is a little ridiculous. This is what I was greeted by when I opened my first dozen of eggs bought here in Scotland. I removed all the other eggs and let this one sit in the container for a few days; partially because I thought it might be the start of a new baby chick for the Murphy household. Apparently people enjoy seeing things like this because it proves to them just how fresh the egg is. I've been told I might also find feathers in a whole raw chicken.
