Egg with blood on it

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Today I got an egg with blood on the shell. Not alot of blood, just a little patch. Wondering if this is normal. Did she tear a bit?

Has she just begun laying, a bit of blood happens at times, it's usually a new layer or a bigger egg than they are used to.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Not unusual, especially in new layers.

As long as it's not a lot of blood or continues every day, shouldn't be a problem.

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!!!
