    Why is it when you crack the egg to eat it that it's like peeling a hard boiled egg. Plus the membrane is so tough that you have to cut it with a knife? Just wondering because chicken eggs are not that hard.

    it all depends on what u feed them. i free-range my birds & i also give them oyster shells & wild bird seed to eat & that toughens it up (variety also changes quality). also they are turkey eggs so they're gonna be a little different than chicken eggs
    hope i helped!

    Thanks, I was just making sure that nothing was wrong with them.
