Chickens lay eggs one after the other – this is well known and does not require research. So it is very surprising when a hen lays a large egg with a smaller one in it. This can be seen in a TikTok viral video that opened a massive egg that revealed a shocking surprise for them.
The video first shows an egg that is much larger than the usual chicken egg. It weighs 150 grams or 0.3 pounds at a height of 8 centimeters or 3 inches. As it stands, it’s three times heavier than your average egg.
The TikTok user @megss__b was initially surprised by the enormous size of the egg. She said it took her hen all afternoon to lie down. After showing a size comparison with a normal egg, they decided to break it open.
When she opened it, she found that the shell was too thin and easy to crack. When it finally opened, anyone can be heard screaming when they see another egg inside.

Wait for it …

Egg in an egg
This surprise egg is actually not that surprising, because although rare, such things can actually happen. As a hen tries to lay an egg, a contraction occurs against the peristalsis, pushing it back towards the chicken’s reproductive system. As a result, that egg is pushed into a developing egg, which then envelops it, explains iFLScience.
As in the TikTok video, the outer egg (egg two) was made into a nutritious albumin and egg yolk. This is the same story with egg one but is much older as it was first cooked by the hen.
In 2018, a hen named Bell is said to have laid extra-large eggs with another one in them. Grégoy Bédécarrats, a professor in the Department of Animal Biosciences at the University of Guelph, told CBC that it was difficult to keep track of how often a hen could lay such eggs. He added that one factor influencing this is the chicken’s genetics.
Strange chicken eggs
Aside from one giant egg with another egg, other quirks can appear. Others see eggs without a shell or softshell. There are also eggs with two or three yolks inside.
