Feedback: why are eggs egg shaped?
« on: 06/02/2016 00:50:02 »
Steve asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi
Just heard a mistake in the latest podcast which has probably already been corrected
It was the reason why eggs are shaped as they are
I assume it is to make them easier to lay because I know from experience that hens don't keep them carefully vertically aligned

Regards
Steve
What do you think?
