What Does Blood In An Egg Mean??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, my crested duck has been laying an egg a day for about 2 months now and the other day one had some blood in it. Not a "streak", about a pea size drop of blood. Is something wrong? Diet? She eats layer crumbles, oyster shells and grit. Veggies 2x a week. The eggs laid after were fine. Thanks!!

Sounds like a blood spot.  Really means nothing.  Just a blood vessel bursting during the formation of the egg:
