    I'm trying to figure out if I have a problem? or it is a normal variation
    I have had 3 eggs lately I think from the same hen that have what seems to be a thick outside membrane or layer of the egg yolk that is darker than the rest of the yolk almost orange?
    that said the chickens HAVE had some access to red bell peppers as well as cleaning up my tomato garden.
    thoughts?
    thanks!

    Congrats with the chickens that have a real healthy life.

    Eggs can vary alot with the backyard flock, making it more fun when collecting eggs.

    Yep healthy fresh feed will change some of the eggs color....too much fun eh? To be able to have the most nutritious eggs possible, healthy hens, and eggs more fun than the commercial industry would want you to enjoy....boring perfect commercial eggs, are like perfect shaped store bought tomatoes eh?

    Looking pretty without nutrition and flavor isn't a option here on the hill. [​IMG]
