Cloudy Whites On One Of My Chicken's Eggs???

    These are 4 eggs from 2 chickens over 2 days. The really cloudy ones come from my older hen. They gross me out looking at them. Are they safe to eat and why are they so different? Facts: The hen is about 5 years old. She's been "eaten" twice by dogs :) and lived. The eggs are the exact same age as the clear eggs.

    I've googled it and all I can find is that cloudy whites are on fresher eggs, but that's not the case, they are the same age. Anyone have any insight into this?
