    I'm getting some weird eggs lately.My hens are about 18 months old and stopped laying for about a month when the weather turned cold. I put a light in the coop and the factory is cranking up again. The only problem is the egg whites come out looking like a jelly fish. They taste fine and I have not gotten sick from eating them but what gives. At first I thought maybe they had frozen. Not so as I had one yesterday that was so fresh it was still warm. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the web site. I have had watery whites and now I know why. What I'm seeing is whites that are some what congealed. It could also look like partially set jello.
    Thanks
