Why are my eggs rotten? - Page 2

Thanks for your help,I really appreciate it.

I *don't think* The previous eggs have been cracked, but watching that closely. I candeled a few. I have one of her eggs on the counter now. I'll candle it before I crack it open.

I have not touched the green stuff-never thought to do so. I will.

Could she have pseudomonas/ staph in her oviduct?

I have been feeding Feather Fixer, a little bit of scratch, a few table scraps here and there. No supplements. I did feed a round of strike III/hygromycin supplement in the spring to the entire flock. (That did actually seem to improve condition in a number of birds.)

Just my 2C.  We see all manner of stuff in our eggs.  Brown chunks, grit, foamy stuff, blood, etc.  We just pick it out before we cook.  If it looks unappealing, we toss the egg.  We don't have Easter Eggers, but we've seen green bits before.  I just thought it was from being on grass.

 

We do smell every egg before we cook.  We've had bad ones right out of the coop - usually because our girls love to hide their eggs in the straw and then dig them up a week later.  Our eggs never stay in the fridge more than a few days.  We have neighbors and family that buy our eggs and we eat and bake with them daily.  We rarely have a dozen sit for more than 5 days.  If we suspect an egg is bad, we gently shake it.  If it feels "loose" inside, we toss it.  

 

Good luck!

In general, this is how we operate too. Meat spots, cracked eggs; it happens. This is weird, and different and repetitive.
