Funny looking egg

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by brandy21410, Jan 3, 2017.

  1. Has anyone ever had an egg look like this runny one in the middle. The egg looks suspicious and I wanted everyones opinion to make sure my flock is ok. Any info is appreciated. TIA !! [​IMG]

    To me it looks like the egg dried out a little, especially if the egg shell was porous or thin like they can be sometimes. The egg yolk may have broken or been jostled around and then broke. I know that is just my hypothesis, but if I have a funny egg, I just feed it back to them or my dogs. Runny whites can be a sign of infectious bronchitis. Here are 2 good articles about egg quality if you want to read them"

    My mom in law has like 30 chickens and we get free eggs from her. The whites we have noticed seem to be watery when compared to store bought eggs.... if that helps. We have also had quite a few yolks like you have pictured. Nothing wrong there I agree with everyone else.
