    So which part is the cell membrane? the membrane out of the yolk? and what do you call the yolk and egg white in the biological (cellular) term? and what is the shell? The bone of the cell?

    haven't heard of that.

    Where are those organelles? Seriously.

    No it's NOT a single cell. That's one of the most common biological misconceptions around. The actual undeveloped ova is attached to the yoke sac by a tiny wisp of vascular material. It's visible even in a common chicken egg and looks like a tiny, curled and twisted stream of smoke.
