I have been experiencing a problem with some of our eggs lately. I gather them daily and gently clean any that need cleaning then put them in fridge. When we crack them open to fry or cook the yolks are scrambled and already broken and they are very watery. We use them within a week of being laid so they are not old. Does anyone have any idea why the eggs are doing this? The shells are nice and hard and we never know till we crack one open that the insides are already broken up and watery. My egg customers are experiencing the same thing. The only thing I can think of is that they all want to share the same nest box so over a dozen eggs will be in the box at the end of the day. Plus, they have all become egg eaters if I don't go gather the eggs early enough. All of them getting in and out of the nest usually results in an egg getting broken and if not, they get in the nest and roll the eggs around till they break one, then jump out of nest with it and run screaming around the coop/yard till everyone else gets in on the action. This is the only thing I can think of - that they are somehow scrambling the non-broken eggs but I'm open for other suggetions.
