Sherman Farley found the 4.5-pound egg while hunting last week, the Charleston Daily Mail reports. Another hunter came forward to ID the egg as ostrich after a newspaper feature about the find.
"I put it there for my brother, or whoever, to find while hunting," Herbert Herold told the paper. "I was just being ornery. I'm always doing stuff like that."
Herold said a farmer gave him two ostrich eggs and the one Farley found was rotten, so he left it in the crook of a tree.
