    This morning I went to crack a store bought egg and the inter membrane was slightly tough to breakk through and egg white (albumen) was "white"... not clear or opaque as what I am used to.The yolk was unusually larger and more plump. The sell by date on the carton was dated jan 27th. well within the use by date.

    I have cracked a few eggs in my time and have never run accross this before!
    Does anyone know what this is???

    Never saw this before, maybe it was improperly stored or if that was the only one in the whole carton, it may just be something went wrong during development from that hen. Sorry I can't be of more help...
