The first five orange chicken unhatched eggs in the image, from left to right, are the types of eggs referred to as Eyerlekh

Eyerlekh (Yiddish: אייערלעך‎, "little eggs") are creamy, flavorful unhatched eggs found inside just-slaughtered chickens and typically cooked in soup. They were historically common in Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine, but their usage has become much less frequent with the rise of prepackaged chicken parts.[1]
