* Occasionally, a chicken might have trouble laying an egg. Instead of going down the oviduct and out the cloaca like normal, it might remain there. Another yolk comes down for the eggshell to form and it might encase the previous egg as well, resulting in what looks like a larger then normal egg once the chicken finally lays it. This large egg will have the previous egg inside it. Other times, an egg will come out with a shell and white, but no yolk, and such eggs were once thought to be laid by ''roosters''. Still other times, if a hen has some kind of distress or illness, she might lay a "cooked" egg. (No, really.) Most of the time, though, she will either lay sporadically or stop laying all together after that.

* The Easter Bunny, according to some. They're not all chocolate, you know. Mythologically, the bunny [[BalefulPolymorph originated as a egg-laying animal]]; being able to lay eggs once a year was a form of consolation (the day was only later {{retcon}}ned to Easter). Of course, in the original myths the bunny wasn't [[ShesAManInJapan Peter Cottontail]].

* PlayedWith in Creator/DrSeuss' ''Horton Hatches the Egg'': Everybody flocks to see the (male) elephant sitting on an egg, but it was actually laid by a bird who asked Horton to egg-sit (though it's unclear if the mother planned to come back). At the end, this trope turns out to be a case of [[spoiler:LamarckWasRight, as the egg hatches into a winged elephant]].

* Played with in the ''VideoGame/AdventureIsland'' series, where you can get items from eggs, as well as dinosaurs (predictably). Who, or what, lays item eggs? Oviparous mammals, oviparous robots, and oviparous slime creatures in ''Pokémon'' figure into [[Website/{{Cracked}} Cracked's]] #27 [[http://www.cracked.com/photoplasty_388_27-science-lessons-as-taught-by-famous-video-games/ Science Lesson As Taught by Famous Video Games]].

** Similarly, plant seeds could be considered a kind of egg. (Alton Brown invokes this trope on ''Series/GoodEats'' when discussing what wheat germ is. He also compares an avocado to an egg, because of both its shape and its high fat content.)
