I think I discovered what looks like a fossilized egg.

I have included a few pics, hope they help with an ID! Thanks in advance

I would say almost certainly not.

 

In any case, collecting information would be helpful: Where is it from (even roughly), age, formation, horizon, etc. What else was there? In what position/what strata was the specimen found, and so on.

Welcome to the forum 

 

I agree, looks more like a concretion in an egg shape.  Not seeing any eggshell covering or other characteristics that would say egg.

Welcome to the Forum. :) 

Unfortunately, these gentlemen have the right of it. 

No eggshell texture, and the "rind" is much to thick for eggshell.

Yours looks like it may be a limestone or sandstone Concretion. 

It's a cool looking rock. Many people are fooled by concretions, so don't be dismayed. ;) 

Keep looking, though. 

Regards,

I go along with everyone else and agree with Wendell. It sure would be helpful to have more information.
