    I thought about taking a picture after i had already scrambled the egg.. (sorry)

    But, when I was cracking the eggs into a bowl this morning i noticed that some of the whites are totally clear and some of the eggs had a white "thing" in the white part.

    I do have a few roosters so I know my eggs are fertile , but this was not in the yolk it was in the white part.

    any idea on what this may be?

    Quote:so it does not mean that my eggs are "funny" or "off" its perfectly safe i assume

    so why did only some eggs have it and some did not?

    It is perfectly safe to eat. Occurs in all eggs, just more noticeable in some.
