Is this worms in my eggs?

i have been told yes and no just wanting some verification. They don’t move but when I pick them up they don’t always break. If anything I was thinking thread worms? If all else fails I’ll get a float test done. One egg always has it and the others have it some times.

Hard to tell...if you have other photos :)
Anyway, to me, it looks like part of the egg - the chalazae, but I may be wrong.
The chicken chick link has a good photo of thread worms in eggs.
IF you think they are worms, then either get a fecal float for confirmation or go ahead and worm your hens.
Fenbendazole (Safeguard) can be used - dosage is 0.23ml per pound of weight, given orally for 5 days in a row.
You can also use Valbazen at 0.08ml per pound of weight, give once, then repeat in 10 days.
Both at those dosages will treat most poultry worms. (including thread worms:))
