What's wrong with this egg?

This morning DH was making breakfast. He cracked an egg, but although the shell fell off the eggs did not open. The inner membrane stayed intact. Is this normal? I am going to try to post a picture.

Whatever caused this, I made hard boiled eggs with these eggs yesterday and they turned out great! They peeled perfectly. Too bad I wasn't making them for deviled eggs, when you need the eggs to peel well.

Kinda cool! Carol, were they farmer's market eggs? I've had some different experiences with those.

I've had that happen with pullet eggs. The shells are thicker and the membrane is hard to break.

You can probably find a buyer on Ebay.

We broke the egg over the sink and it did look OK, but we didn't eat it. The eggs were bought at WalMart and the rest of them were fine.

Thanks Carol, I was wondering if you ate it. I would have tossed it too.

Yes, it is. I think the color was distorted a bit because of the membrane being intact and also the lighting when we took the pic. When we broke it, the yolk ran out bright yellow, not brownish. These eggs had a very bright yolk rather than a pale yellow yolk that some eggs have.
