Discuss bluegrass_sunset's answer to: Why do egg yolks break easily?

-Too much corn when it's hot outside could cause this.  If you are feeding scratch right now, stop and resume giving scratch when the weather cools off.

-Age could be a possibility, but if they are new layers of course this wouldn't be the case.

-The chicken could be starting to molt (shedding and renewing feathers). During the molt the reproductive system of the bird is allowed a complete rest from laying and the bird builds up its body reserves of nutrients. 

-It could  also be a deficiency of some sort and switching up feeds might help balance that back out.
