Egg within egg

Maria La Frenais got more than she bargained for when she broke an egg for breakfast. The Glendene resident was about to start a morning fry-up when she made the unusual discovery - an egg inside an egg.

Ms La Frenais says the egg - described by experts as a freak of nature - was in a tray of supersized free range eggs.

An egg within an egg was found in New South Wales in 2004.

Sydney University poultry science professor Tom Scott says a normal egg disturbed in the shell gland could move back up into the oviduct and start production all over again, resulting in an egg inside an egg. Link
