Nature is miraculous: Trees turn sunlight into air, cows turn grass into milk, and chickens turn meal into long eggs. Sometimes, those eggs are long, as a recent viral post to Reddit’s r/WTF revealed.
“So, my chicken just laid this monstrosity…” redditor E_graaa wrote beneath the photo of the seriously long egg.
As of this article’s publication, the post had received over 30,000 upvotes, with many of the 1,400 comments either inquiring about how the chicken is faring after laying the egg or speculating on what kind of dinosaur the egg really came from. Yes, Ellie McGrath, the person behind the account, tells Inverse, the egg really did come from a chicken, and yes, the chicken is doing fine.
