    OSTRICH EGGSHELLS

    Real, 100% American, ostrich eggs - blown out, sterilized, and with an 11/16" hole drilled on one end - for home decor or craft projects.  "Oviduct scarred" eggs have unique markings on them that appear on the exterior of the eggshell as it makes it way down the hen's oviduct before it is laid.  Nature at work!

    Oviduct scarring indicates an egg that has major ridges, bumps, lines, and/or creases.  They may also be especially elongated or have a flatter shape than unscarred eggshells.  Each of these eggs is highly unique and makes a wonderful specimen of avian biology and physiology.
