Egg With Cross On It (PHOTO): 'Holy Egg' Is Latest Over-Analyzed Religious Icon

Posted: Updated:

BURLESON, Texas — A Fort Worth-area couple said one of their hens laid an egg with a cross on the end of it. Pam and Tracy Norrell of Burleson, who displayed the odd-shaped egg, said they believe it's a sign of encouragement during the holiday season.

Tracy Norrell said he was gathering eggs Monday night when one he picked up seemed to be unusual, not smooth like other eggs. The misshapen egg has an indentation on one end with what appears to be a cross on it.

The Norrells said eating the egg is not an option.

Burleson is about 10 miles south of Fort Worth.
