    Found an egg in a different place today... did the float test and it sunk right away so thought it would be ok. When cracked it just fell out of the shell very fast and the yoke was runny all mixed in with the white.
    Is it bad?

    Was it hot? I noticed the eggs that are warm/hot when I collect and use that day tend to have the yolks break easy [​IMG]
