Egg Telepathy

Useless Superpower: Mrs. Gertrude Smith of York, Pennsylvania claimed that she was able to project mental images into the minds of hens, causing them to lay eggs with distinctive patterns. For instance, she thought of sunflowers and, sure enough, her hens laid eggs with a sunflower pattern.

Unfortunately it doesn't appear that any pictures were taken of the patterned eggs, even though Mrs. Smith brought some into the offices of the York Gazette and Daily, in order to prove her claim.
