@vlbee: It actually freaks me out that store bought eggs are all the same perfect size and shape. Fresh eggs come in all shapes, sizes and colors. It should be fine.And if you ever want to check to see if your eggs have gone bad put them in a bowl filled with water, if they float toss ’em.

As long as the yoke and whites looked normal, and didn’t smell bad, then it is fine.  You will know a bad egg when you see how different the yoke and white look and smell.

We have a few chickens and their eggs are all different, some are long and skinny, some are more round. Have not had any issues with the long skinny eggs, I think you are ok!

That one’s just from a skinny chicken.  j/k. 

Don’t worry about it at all.  As long as it seemed otherwise fine once you cracked it there’s no issue.  It’s kind of like produce.  All the “perfect” looking ones go to the stores to be sold directly to consumers, and the “imperfects” would usually be sold to places that are making something more processed for a cheaper rate.  If you’re buying natural eggs, they’re just not making selections based purely on aesthetics.
