I was just wondering if yellow tinged whites are a bad thing or are they normal? Or if anyone knows what causes that? My jumbo egg layer always seems to have slightly yelllow in the whites until they are cooked, then they turn as white as everybody elses. Anyone know why? Or how to stop this?

It's normal! Mine tend to be slightly yellow-ish, too. We're just used to the egg "white" being clear. Sounds like your girls have good nutrition.

Thank you everyone for your input but the eggs are kind of yellow tinged straight out the chicken's butt, so I know they are good and fresh and I only add a fraction of cracked corn when the weather is bitter cold or wet/snowy. I can't picture corn going into the digestive tract and skipping over to the reproductive organs, no matter how hard I try.

It's not that it skips from the digestive tract to the reproductive, rather that the chemicals are transferred via the blood stream.

Give your chickens some pumpkin and you'll see the most orange yolks you've ever seen, I promise!
