Ummm, ok. Lately as we've been cracking into our eggs, some have been hard-boiled. (!!!) They don't look like regular hard-boiled eggs. The have some brown-tinged whites. (Sorry for the bad photo!!)

I've already ruled out mixing up hard-boiled and fresh b/c we haven't hard-boiled our eggs in a month or two. And I know it wasn't a prank.

On a hard-boiled egg thread, I read that acid could possibly "cook" an egg. (Kind of like using lemon juice to cook salmon.) The birds have been sleeping in the nesting boxes lately, so there is a lot of poop in there. Maybe that has something to do with it. (?)

This just happened with one of my chickens too! I’ve kept chickens for over 10 years and never seen this before. I just cracked an egg that looked full of yolk and “cooked”. I wonder how this happens?
