If It doesn't happen a lot it's prolly hen specific, and not serious either....while it's not eye appealing, it is perfectly ok to eat the way it is, or simply pick that speck out. I have also seen that in the past and would worry about selling eggs that had the spot. if I remember right, Robin has useful information on this topic... she has the ability to explain stuff so well!
The annual cheeseheads bash is always the weekend after memorial weekend. It is a chance to put faces with names and renew old friendships every year. More information to come when one of us here create a new bash thread on the chickenstock forum here.....I will say it's a fun time, and yes it is for the whole family...the kids have a blast, as well as the adults.
Is there any way to prevent it or is that hen/hens always going to do this?
It happens. If it happens a LOT , then try to pin point which hen it is.. if it is the same hen and it is happening a lot, then I would get rid of her.. but that is just me.
we have plenty of unblemished eggs. no sense feeding a chicken like that.
but I really doubt that it is an epidemic, just wait it out and it probably will quit ..
It has been years since we had blood in an egg.
I don't know how this would affect a hatching egg. ?
somebody else might shine more light on the subject..
