I do realize this one is going to be extra hard since the mystery animal is still inside the egg but it’s a holiday so everything is just a little worse today, you know?
This is just for fun and the only rule is: no researching. Post your best guesses in the comments. Answer will be posted in the comments tomorrow.

I think it has to be a bird that nests on rock ledges. The shape helps keep the egg from rolling too far (it will mostly spin in circles), and the coloration would help it blend in.

These eggs belong to the guillemot. From this animal’s Wiki entry:
