Porkchop's picture

My avatar is a picture of an egg. I was making brownies and I cracked one egg and there was a white thing in it, so I decided to open that up. There was another little white thing inside of that too. I couldn't sleep that night until I had a scientific explanation for this, so I learned that chickens can actually produce eggs that have eggs inside of their egg. If there is a blockage in the cloaca, eggs will move their way into another egg before the shell is calcified around it.
