    My birds have been laying since last summer and I've gotten a few eggs with strange yolks this week. They are VERY firm, standing almost completely round when cracked. There is a slight tie-dyed appearance to the outside of the yolk. When the yolk is broken, the center of it seems almost as if it is already partially cooked. The eggs are collected several times a day and there has been no change to their diet. Any ideas?
