Found something in an egg.. What is it? Lol

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello! Our chickens started laying in a blanket of snow early January and have been giving us an egg every day since... We cracked an egg open for breakfast and found this... It's worm shaped but was hoping it was a meat spot or something else because our girls are very healthy and we have been poo watching and haven't seen anything worm like.

Thanks for your help big_smile.png

I would guess that it is a meat spot, just a strange form. I get a blob in one of mine occasionally. Here is a picture of a large roundworm worm in an egg below. Here are a couple of links about egg quality, and scrool down in the first one to see the meat spot  pic:
