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”.

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.
