    Sometimes our hens lay up by our shed and they sometimes lay in this plastic. I went up to checck it today and there was 3 eggs i picked them up and they smlled like fish. I looked back at where they layed and there was yolk.. not much of it. Is there any explanation for those eggs.... well ony 2 of them smelled like fish and they were covered in dried yolk. Any explanations?

    I'm pretty sure now that it was yolk.. old yolk. I got rid of the pastic too. Thats weird that yolk alrady out of the egg and has been for a while that smells like fish...
