I was basically a city girl who was raised with a lot of exposure to my paternal grandparents, who lived on a fully working farm, but I would have done the same thing. Little kids crack me up! (pun intended - egg- cracked - lol)

I have a friend who got some mulch delivered to her house a while back. In the warm mulch, there was an egg. She took that egg and put it in her house where she kept it warm with a heating pad. It hatched! I kid you not! It was a super cute little duckling and she raised it, named it Lucky, and ended up giving it to a farmer later on, where it lives happily ever after.

Just kidding about the "lives happily ever" part, I have no idea where it is now or if it's still alive, but I promise you, the rest of the story is absolutely true.

This is an aside, something I remembered hearing about or watching on TV. In Asia, I think they have eggs with almost formed chickens, like with the feathers and all, and they eat them like that. I think they said it has special nutrition and makes people feel energized or strong. I may be wrong but I think they even say that pregnant women eat them or they eat them after giving birth to avoid post-partnum depression. It was a long time ago so I may be wrong on some points.

Yes, you are right. It's called Balut.

I've noticed that with the jumbo eggs, the shells are much thinner than regular eggs. On occasion when I've had to buy large eggs, I tap them lightly to break the shell and am always surprised when I have to use more force to break them.
Commercially farmed eggs in general are typically thinner-shelled.

Josh Gates tried that and even he, who it seems can eat just about anything, choked on trying to get it down.

We have breeds that lay brown-shelled eggs, white-shelled, and blue-shelled.

Cooked and served side by side, you cannot tell the difference. Diet can affect the taste, but they all eat the same diet.

I thought of this thread this morning. I was having my weekly "treat" of a couple fried eggs instead of the usual liquid scrambled variety. Both eggs were double yolked.

Oh, lucky you! I would be so excited if that happened to me. BTW - has anyone reading this thread ever cracked open an egg and found a triple yolk? I never have, but I would be super happy to see one.

The yolk of the egg is not a baby chick and it is not going to turn into a chick.
It was a serious question. I assumed people would understand I meant a fertilized egg with two yolks which obviously would or should turn into chicks. I guess I can't take anything for granted. By twins I mean two chicks coming from one egg. Is this possible?
