Cloudy Whites On One Of My Chicken's Eggs???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

These are 4 eggs from 2 chickens over 2 days.  The really cloudy ones come from my older hen.  They gross me out looking at them.  Are they safe to eat and why are they so different?  Facts:  The hen is about 5 years old.  She's been "eaten" twice by dogs :) and lived.  The eggs are the exact same age as the clear eggs.

 

I've googled it and all I can find is that cloudy whites are on fresher eggs, but that's not the case, they are the same age.  Anyone have any insight into this?

Welcome to BYC. It seems to be very common apparently because of a lot of carbon dioxide in the egg. Here are some posts from others:
