    It's really likely that your friend just over-boiled the egg, but if you're certain she absolutely didn't overcook it, maybe it could be this:

    I read something in a book the other day that a hen's diet will affect the color of her egg yolk. The book said that possible causes for a hen's egg to be green inside could be that maybe your gal took a bite out of some acorns or shepherd's purse, if stuff like that grows in your area.

    But it doesn't say anything about green eggs being bad to eat or anything. [​IMG] So not to worry.
