That Came From WHERE?????

“Do you know where that thing comes out? I’m not going to eat that!”

Dirty eggs

Believe it or not, I’ve actually heard a few people say this about eggs. Some people are only willing to eat eggs that are perfectly clean and completely removed from the farm with any connection to the animal that supplied it stripped completely clean.

To those people I say, get real. No really, I mean it, get REAL.

In real life, an egg comes out of the same opening that poop does in a bird. It’s called a cloaca and it is very efficient. When the egg drops down through the oviduct (which is a separate from the intestine) and is ready to be released, it squeezes the opening to the intestine shut, effectively separating the poop from the egg.



Once the egg is laid, the intestinal track opens up again and is ready for action.
