Have you ever heard of a wind egg?
Sure! It’s also known as a weird egg. A wind egg is any soft-shelled hen’s egg, laid before the harder shell is formed. In the Middle Ages, they were often called cock’s eggs, and the influences of the planets, the vagaries of the weather, or ill winds were blamed for them. The eggs were considered barren and unfit to eat.
