It’s a chicken egg, so it comes from a chicken. It’s enclosed in a shell, and you don’t eat that part. Can be prepared in a variety of ways. Avoid eating raw.
It tastes pretty good, especially when it’s not old. It actually has two parts - yolk and white. The yolk is the part that is bad for you but has more flavor, apparently. An egg experience can be completely different depending on its preparation.
