[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A friend of mine told me he would send me a surprise. Since he allways has a good hand to find something, I waited what shoul it be. Surprise it came in a Box. Our experience with it besides the size comparison with a chicken egg was first it was not easy to open, we had to use a small hammes and a strong pointed nife to get a hole to extract its contenent. After that we made scrambled eggs and feed14 people with it. Finally the shale is decorating my library. If austriches could be farmed and get them to lay sufficient eggs, this could be a solution to feed people.

this is a very interesting subject. i've always wanted to see an ostritch egg. for what it's worth there's an ostritch farm just off of the main freeway between Phoenix and Tuscon Arizona in the US.

Hi Rolf,
nice one, this really does show of the size of an Austrich egg. Great note, I'm impressed of the size, feeding 14 people!.
Very well done.
