This chicken consistently lays more eggs than the others. However, they are always thin shells with sandpaper texture. Then the yolk of every egg has these spots. They are soft, but they have a more firm texture than the rest of the egg.

I have searched this site and others to try to find something similar, but with no success.

What is it?

They are called meat spots. Basically, little bits of soft tissue that is shed during the egg making process. You don't see them in grocery store eggs, because they are candled and eggs with meat spots are removed.
