What would cause the white of the egg to be like water?
The number one thing is the age of the egg. Storing them at room temperature and low humidity can cause eggs to age faster.
As the hens age the eggs can become more watery.
If this is a more sudden thing that can't be traced to egg handling, then it's possible they got a batch of poor feed or ingested some fungal toxins from spoiled feed or from drinking algae laced water.
Infectious Bronchitis (IB) can also cause watery whites. However, there are other symptoms that go along with IB such as wrinkled eggs, respiratory problems, etc...
