What is this?

Several of my eggs had this sort of spot this morning. I threw one out about twice this size.

Just a meat spot, nothing to be concerned about. The egg is still fine to eat.

Meat spot or blood spot.

 

Caused by tiny blood vessel breaking when ova is released,

or tiny piece of tissue breaking off somewhere along the way.

 

Nothing to worry about, it's pretty common.

 

This video is quite informative and shows how it happens.

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."
