Floury egg whites

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I can't see a way to post in the other forums so my apologies if this is in the wrong section. I have a question, one or more of our chickens (I'm not sure which) are laying eggs that have unusual egg whites when poached - they are, for want of a better way of describing them, floury, speckled and markedly different than the others. I can't find out much about this online and wondered if anyone here has had a similar experience and if so what causes it? Many thanks for your help.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Michael.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

You might take a look at this article in the Learning Center about egg quality problems...maybe you'll recognize your issue there:

I would like to know the answer to the "floury egg whites," myself-  I've never heard of that before.
