    some of my fresh eggs that we eat have very runny yolks that break immediately when we crack them in the pan, any idea why? they don't seem to be rotten, smell ok, collected every day

    They may be getting too hot in your hen house? My coop is really hot, so I put in three fans to help circulate air, and cut a new window too.
