Getting rid of blood spots

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My pullets have just began laying. Almost every egg has had a blood spot in it. I have 12 hens but they aren't all laying yet. Is this just common because they are just starting to lay or is there something i need to do?

Can be more common when first starting to lay...but some of my older birds have them occasionally too. We don't see them in grocery eggs because they are sorted out during quality control.

 

Usually just a normal 'glitch', tiny blood vessel breaks when ova is released, I pick them out sometimes, sometimes not.

 

Let my customers know, mine don't seem to mind once they understand it, ask them to take a pic and let me know if there's a lot of them or more blood than just a speck.

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!!!
