This might not be a common thing elsewhere, but here in Africa, when we slaughter a hen that has been laying (or which was about to start laying), we normally keep any forming eggs inside of it, cook and serve these with the rest of the chicken.
Now, I'm looking for a way to describe such eggs, when they are served, typically, with the chicken broth. Checkout the bit I'm writing:
And it wasn’t just the plate, I had been given two small bowls as well; one holding the chicken broth that had flattered my imagination, long before it was ever served; the other held two generous pieces of chicken, and one small, premature egg.
Does the phrasing and choice of words sound right or could I have used a better word to describe that peculiar kind of egg?
