A single egg is laid per season. The egg is ovate or elliptical. It is colored white and sometimes has reddish blood spots from ruptured capillaries in the parent. It is typically 108 mm in length and 67.1 mm in diameter, about the median for albatross species. It typically weighs 278 grams. The male may or may not be present during egg laying. If it is, it tends to make a soft "moo" sound when the egg is deposited. (Fisher 109)
