    I have some layers that the whites are so thin, the yolk pops out when you fry them. I have taken to just using them for baking. I think it is because of the age of the hen - going on 3 years. But people often post on much older hens laying.

    Is it her age, or just her eggs?

    Thank you for the site, I think it is just the chicken, she lays a light brown egg, and lately it is alway watery.
