From what I'm told by a person involved in the industry, because the chickens are all cooped up, no pan intended, and never see the light of the day, the yolks are actually grey in color. To avoid this, the chickens are being fed some sort of chemical combinations that makes yolks yellow.

Chickens are fed marigold petals to improve the color of the yolks (or their skin, if they are meat chickens), but I don't think yolks are ever grey. My chickens eggs get lighter in color during the winter because they aren't getting the veggies that I feed them in the summer.

I wonder if that funny looking egg maybe froze at some point--that might break the shell like that.
