    I've noticed there is a tough inner membrane to the eggs my hens lay. I crack the eggs and then feel like I should get a chisel. What is causing this? It seems to be all of them.

    Gosh darn eggs are fresh, that's what is causing it.

    Hey - interesting only one of my girls eggs are like that too. [​IMG]
    I sometimes think as I try and crack it -that it might be a boiled egg I have put into the fridge, the membrane is so thick. [​IMG]
    The other eggs are not like that at all!!
    I just thought it was a quirk of one of my girls.[​IMG]
