I was talking to a friend, that I give eggs to. and she said - when poaching the eggs the white separates completely from the yolk.
the white has no firmness to it. It just is very thin & liquid like.

has anyone got any ideas why this is.

Old eggs? Or boiling the water too rapidly?

It might be breed related too, I have found that my Wyandotte eggs are perfect for poaching, the whites are much firmer and very little watery white. It's possible that for whatever reason, some breeds produce eggs with very runny, loose whites?

Have you noticed the same thing with your eggs? Could it be how they are being stored if only your friend is having the problem?

It can't hurt if she poaches the eggs in little clingwrap pouches to contain the white when cooking.
