    I was fixing eggs one morning,(from my newly acquired-first time ever having my own girls) and the first egg was great looking, but when I broke the shell on the second egg, it looked wrong.

    The yolk was fine but the white was milky. It was like a cloudy sack around the yolk.

    I wish I'd taken a picture!

    There were two outta five that looked that way. I didn't eat them...
    I haven't cooked anymore eggs since, so I'm not sure if any more will look like that.

    Maybe the relocation (they moved in two weeks ago) caused a wierdness!?

    I gather every morn and put em in the fridge right away...and there is no rooster.
    Any Ideas?

    It means it's a fresh egg.
