Is it normal for inside of fresh eggs to be stiff? Okay, I've been getting eggs for 11 days now! Yay me! I'm keeping track of their laying habits and I've gotten a total of 14 eggs as of today. The egg consistency seems stiff compared to the regular store eggs. The yolks are a beautiful deep orange color and are much harder to break and mix compared to store eggs. This is normal right? I can stab the yolk several times and it doesn't leak into the white. I just want to make sure I'm feeding my girls right and not too many treats. I give them every morning a few handfuls of homemade scratch. I free range 2-6 hours in a day. I do not feed a high quality chicken feed(sprout). My eggs taste fabulous, but I'm having a difficult time getting use to the stiffness. It's so weird eating food your pets produce.
