Can I do anything to stop it.
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.

After 2 years I think it's pretty normal for it to happen, some birds more than others.

If they specks are very large and/or happen constantly, there could be an internal problem......

......tho I don't know if or how it can be 'fixed'.

 

I have a had few very bloody eggs, but they were glitches that didn't continue.....

......but it sure makes you break eggs in a separate bowl for while.

 

We don't see these in grocery eggs because can they sort them out as rejects.

I don't even bother spooning them out usually.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Is their a machine to see if the egg has it in it before I sell them? My younger chickens also lay eggs with blood spots in it!

Sometimes you can see them if you candle them.....I found one once while candling prior to setting eggs in incubator.

My customers know that they might see them, what they are and that they are fine to eat.
