I have a chicken related question that I don't think can go anywhere else.. Whenever my mom cracks open an egg from our Showgirl, Frou-Frou, there's bubbles in the egg white. Like little air bubbles. I know that they have air sacs in the ends of eggs, but why would there be air bubbles in the whites? Just a curiousity question.

You didnt say how old the hen is. In searching for info that might help you i found that older hens have this issue. Plus the bubbles can come from a flacid oviduct (especially if the egg is laid nearing molting) which allows air into the system

Shes about a year or two old. She is just coming out of a molt I do believe.
