You mean the food the chickens are fed right? Although I'm still skeptic towards your last sentence.

Also in my experience the inner membrane toughness is not really correlated to free-range or not.
At home we have 2 chickens and sometimes the membrane is tough sometimes it isn't.
The same with store bought eggs, depends on the batch.
Yes the industrial grade "food" the chickens are fed, because of patent laws or outright corporate litigation I don't think the farming industry has had to tell consumers the complete truth.. and when it comes to food this is important

I neither squeeze nor push my thumbs into the egg. The action I use is that of opening a little box with a hinge. The hinge is on the side opposite the one you rap on the counter. This goes very fast and I rarely drop any shell bits into the bowl. Never had any problem with the membrane not rupturing during the cracking part of the operation.

Hmm surprised there is a video necessary for this, but the ol' crack it against the frying or sauce pan does the trick for eons :)
