    So I cracked an egg to scramble for the chickens and dogs this morning and found this. Yuck. I've had a couple girls on antibiotics,that's why the chickens and dogs were getting these eggs, but what on earth is that????

    Just a glitch probably....pieces of tissue can break off occasionally and end up encased in an egg, unless you see it regularly probably nothing to worry about.

    How old are hens? Why on antibiotics?

    I wouldn't feed antibiotic laden eggs to anything.

    They're about 9 months old. They're on antibiotics for respiratory infections. I suppose I shouldn't feed them back to the girls or to the dogs, but I have a friend who does the same thing. Honestly, I would probably eat them myself and not worry about it too much, but I don't want to accidentally give them away to someone who is allergic.
