    I scrambled up a few of my eggs today. Aside from the skin like membrane under the shell, the egg has a consistency i don't see in store bought eggs. The whites are pretty thick and don't really mix in with the yolk. Is this typical?

    In reference to the membrane under the shell, it's really tough. I practically had to tear those eggs apart.

    [​IMG] I think whatever you're doing it's the right thing. Sounds like you have some really good eggs(chickens).
