Don't fancy yours much: This egg has an inch-long "tail"

It’s probably not what you want to see staring back from your breakfast plate first thing, but this egg has an inch-long “tail”.

The unusually shaped egg was laid by a hen in Hukou, China, the Mail Online said.

It’s unknown if the misshapen offering was consumed, but it’s not the first time Chinese hens have offered up such oddities.

According to China News a “spoon-shaped” egg was laid by a hen in Huaibei City, Anhui province, in January 2005.

Railway worker Huang Yazhou apparently awoke to hear the hen responsible “making weird noises” before delivering the 8.5cm long egg.

Another egg with a “tail” was revealed in Anyang City, Henan Province, in March of the same year, Poultry Help said.
