ImmaHoopyFrood: When we raised chickens we would get double-yolks but never an embedded egg.  I used to hate going out there and seeing a chicken that had the occasional blowout or 'prolapse' after laying a massive egg with their insides all laid out behind it.

Out of all the thousands we had over the years I'd seen it maybe 20 times and only saved one.  If you catch them while they are in the process of blowing out you can help them egg and then shove their guts back in and they can sometimes make it.  But usually it happens when you aren't around and the other chickens peck at the guts until the chicken dies.

According to the UK's Guardian, the 87-year-old woman who owned the chicken thought it was dying as it tried to lay the egg.

Bet the chicken did too
