What is in my egg?!

post #1 of 5

I have 19 laying hens and two roosters. They were all supposed to be hens. And I haven't the heart yet to eat my cross dressers. Haha. Any ways I was making French toast today and this egg has a lot of blood and a mass in it. What is it? [IMG]

Is that chunk solid or squishy?

It's good to cut those open to see what's inside.

 

Sometimes eggs can have a bit of blood in them, or meat spots, or blood spots.

Caused from a piece of tissue or a blood vessel breaking as the ova is released.

We don't see those in grocery eggs because they are inspected and sorted out.

 

What you have there could be a big clot of blood or a chuck of pus from an infection called a 'lash egg'.

 

Could never happen again, or repeat indicating a health issue.

It'll sure make you break eggs one at a time into a dish,

rather than into your pan or recipe for a good long while.

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!!!

Yea no kidding! I've been breaking them individually all day. And I'm sure that will continue. I'll have to check it out again. I saved it to show my husband. 🤣 Thank you for your response!
