Hi! I've been lurking on and off for several years in anticipation of getting my own chickens.. however, we are still supporting local backyard flocks as no chickens for us, yet.
I have a question though.. We've recently been buying eggs from a new person, and I've run across 2 eggs now in the 5doz or so that upon cracking, shows a very thin and watery outer white, and a white colored layer surrounding the inner thick white (not cloudy, but white-white, as if cooked a little!) This white layer if touched will break up and float around in bits on the watery albumen.
I've seen cloudy-fresh whites, this is not the same. The yolks look great, nice fresh and tall, no smells.. no idea on this one, I've never come across it in the several years we've been buying eggs from people. Any ideas? Young bird? Genetics? or a sign of something "off"?
