Hi All!!

I noticed this morning that some of our eggs have clear yolk and some have a white sac like thing attached. Can anyone tell me what that is?

It looks like the membrane has come away from the inside of the egg shell when you cracked it into the dish. Can you check the inside of the shell to see if there ia a membrane still attached and it was perhaps a double membrane on that egg for some reason. Have you had more than one of these?

I would guess Nutrition comes into play.
Describe your poultry's diet..:pop
Forgive me but I should have asked for the age along with my original post..


About 4 of them are about three years old. The others are almost a year old. I am not sure who is laying what. They stopped laying for a long while and have just recently started laying again. We aren't sure why they stopped. The only thing we noticed is one of our "pullets" turned out to be a rooster. As soon as he started crowing, they stopped laying. They hate him. LOL

No membrane in the egg shell. I am going to look into the thread that Farmer Connie posted and see if I can find something. Thank you!!

I am not seeing a clear yolk in your photos, just two yolks and what appears to be an egg membrane. Are you saying that you cracked 3 eggs onto that plate.
If there is no membrane in the egg shell then for some reason it has detached and come out with the egg when you cracked it.
Yolkless eggs are usually tiny and are referred to as "fairy" or "fart eggs".
