    I searched the forum, and there are a lot of threads about eggs with watery whites. However, they all refer to the same website for information, and that website doesn't exist.

    I have a small, perky RIR that lays enormous eggs: 75-80 grams. They're all oddly shaped. The have no top or bottom. they're perfect ovals. Every time. The eggs taste wonderful, with deep,yellow, almost orange yolks, but the whites are just like water when I crack the egg in the pan. If I boil the eggs, the white has a very delicate, soft texture. the hen (Henrietta) is 2-3 years old.

    None of the other hens lay oval-shaped eggs. None of them have watery yolks. however, I've notice that when I boil the eggs, they all have those delicate, soft whites, even though the whites seem firm and perfectly normal raw.

    any idea?
