Egg question: The first 2 eggs that I cracked today ended up being fed to the chickens. The first one had a white deposit about the size of a nickel in the membrane over the yolk. The second one had inconsistent texture in the yolk. Portions of it were very thick and much darker orange, almost like it was partially cooked. Any one have response to these eggs??? The only thing I can think of is that perhaps they've had too much protein from eating gobs of Japanese beetles. I hate to deny them their pleasure with the beetles. They're on layer crumble with occasional addition of crushed egg shell or oyster shells. Plenty of green forage in their run, they occasionally get out for an hour of free range, and have been cleaning out ant nests loaded with larvae, queens, eggs and pupae. I'd rather throw out the occasional weird egg than stop them from their very productive (for me) bug patrol.
