Black specks in eggs.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I have little black specks in about half of my eggs. I get about a dozen eggs each day, and about six will have specks in them. I have researched and I know what they are, but I can not find out how to stop/control this problem. Does anyone out there know of anything I can do to fix or control this problem?

I'm not an expert on this, but it is my understanding that if you let them age, the little specks are sort of... absorbed by the proteins, or something to that effect.  I just don't worry about them.  I don't really consider it a problem, just a natural phenomenon that comes with eating wonderfully fresh eggs.

Thanks Punkinpeep, I just thaught maby there was something I could do to keep this from happening, like changing diet, medication, or something like that.

To be honest I don't know what they are. Guess I am asking what they are. If anyone could tell me I would like to know. They don't either me just curious.

I understand they are caused when tiny bloodvesels break while the egg is being formed.

Um... Stop the blood vessels from poping is the only solution I can think of, but that doesn't help you... I have no idea but It was interesting to figure out what caused that natural  occurrence to happen... thanks...

Not to mention some very wonderful and friendly birds (chickens) that have since passed on RIP...

So letteing them sit.for.awhile makes that disappear? Would this have to be at room temperature, or would I be better off letting them sit in the refrigerator?

I haven't tested this personally.  I just remember reading somewhere that this is the reason store bought eggs don't show specks or whatever - because they're older.

I would assume that refrigerated is the answer, but more research should be done before relying too heavily on this "information" that i can't support.  wink

Good point. Looks like I will have to do my research.
