Breaking Yolks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Lately the yolks of our eggs have been breaking extremely easily, when cooking. We have 6 hens who free range throughout the day. We also feed them some cracked corn, scratch grains, and lots of greens and breads and other table scraps. While cooking their eggs over the past 2 week or so it has been near impossible to keep the yolks intact. I cook a lot of eggs and have never had this problem before! Has anyone had this problem before? Any suggestions on how to fix it? Thanks!

I've only seen this on old eggs.

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

Do you live somewhere hot? If so, are you collecting promptly and refrigerating your eggs? If not, the heat could be causing the yolk breakage. It's not harmful if that's the cause. I live in a subtropical country and everyone has that problem in the summer.
