A "Cholent Egg" is a whole egg (w/ the shell) that is left in the Chulent overnight. So does the shell protect it, or does it still get Fleishig status?

According to Maran they would be considered Pareve IIRC. – Hacham Gabriel Aug 8 '13 at 14:15

It is Fleishig. Egg shells are porous.

And even if it is not, pots become fleishig so why should this be different?

You are correct that they are porous enough to transfer taste. Although it isn't as porous as their pots- see YD 86:5. – YDK Jun 24 '10 at 4:11
