    Hi, We have been getting some eggs with a very tough inner membrane. The shell cracks fine but the membrane stays intact,and we have to kindof poke through it. Just trying to fry some eggs here !! Is this an issue with diet ? or just normal ? Thank You

    It's very normal for backyard eggs (and for young layers in particular). It's a sign of a really fresh egg. As are cloudy whites.
