I got this egg from one of my RIR ...is it ok to eat ..I'm not sure what that whitish stuff is
It is called a chalaza. It anchors the yolk so it doesn't get damaged against the eggshell in case the egg is moved. They get smaller as the egg ages. You can pick it out if you want but its safe to eat.
It's the little rope that holds the yolk in the center.
Great !! Thanks
Yes, that it just the Chalaza. Nothing to worry about.
Enjoy the egg!
Cooked it up and ate it already ...tasted fine ..thanks
