Huge egg with runny White

Asked August 2, 2020, 3:45 PM EDT

I have a hen in her 2nd summer who fairly consistently lays this huge egg. It always has a runny white and is not typically a double-yoked. Anything I can do to Selph her out or should I cull her from the flock. Coop is plenty large with adequate nesting boxes and ventilation. I collect eggs before afternoon heat.

If she continuously has eggs with runny egg white, she has something wrong with her reproductive tract. I suspect it could be Infectious Bronchitis or Mycoplasma. If she is not a pet, I would cull her from the flock.
