1. Southern cassowary eggs.

These special birds native to Australia are known for their large black feathered body and their long pale blue necks. They are the second heaviest bird in the world and are also regarded as the most dangerous because of their aggressive personality and sharp claws. They lay one of the most unique and unusual eggs in the animal kingdom.  

2. Gymnophiona

Their eggs are very small but completely transparent. You can even see babies moving inside these eggs. Its life is strange and scientists do not even know much about it. 

3. Ayam cemani.

4. Emu eggs

5. Ostrich egg

Ostrich is the largest bird species in the whole world with an absolutely huge egg. An ostrich egg weighs four and a half pound and equivalent to twenty four normal chicken eggs. Its shell is incredibly thick to support its big size and one would need a domestic drill to crack it. They take an hour to boil for consumption. 

6. Robin egg

Robins are beautiful small birds with brown feathers, a white belly and a famous orange breast. Robins eggs are even more colored and interesting. They are pale blue and it is such a distinctive colour that robin egg blue is an official colour. 

7. Guillemot eggs
