Not really trying to complicate or 'scramble our eggs' before they hatch, I feel compelled to at least present the following further possibility for DPOF and your consideration concerning the constitution of our 'mystery 4th egg', notwithstanding 'the Matt scenario'. There do exist in the natural scheme of things 'multiple embryo/yolk eggs'. Some are somewhat larger/different than the single embryo egg, right? Could this 4th large white egg be a 'binary embryo egg'? Therefore, to the utter horror of Mickey, could this so-called '4th egg' really be 'the 4th and 5th (if due) egg combined'. Multivariate speculations on development and hatching results defy the wildest imagination with the concepts of just what survives, embryo-merger, birth defect anomalies, pollution caused biochemical genetic damage, other aberration results... {you get the point). So, we may have to soon face a heartbreaking day of reckoning. Maybe not. Maybe all is well and 'normal'. Time and reality will surely tell...
Tim 04/18/04 08:08 pm For what ever the reason for the absent coloring of the egg is, the truth of the matter is that it's infrequent that more then two survive. While I was raising Turkeys and chickens I often saw differnces in egg shape size and color.I have no explanation, other farmers told me it was due to diet.
Marie 04/18/04 10:15 pm Fred ...you are so eliquent with that incredible dissertation here as to the origin of THIS LARGE WHITE EASTER EGG. I was very moved and wait in anticipation as to the outcome of this oddity in the nest.
