Ick! Bloody yolk!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

What could that be from?  I looked in "The Chicken Health Handbook" and it says chronic cholera or newcastles, but both are fairly uncommon, so I'm hoping it is something that just happens from time to time.  Anyone else ever have an egg like this?

ETA:  It is in the frying pan, that's why some of the white is, well, white.

I had a teeny bit of blood in a double yolk egg before, but it has never happened again.  Is it reoccuring or did it happen just once?

I'm baaaaaaaaaaackkkkkkkk.

Thinkin bout changing my username.

Probably just happened. Nothing to worry about, unless it happens frequently.

Nope, no rooster.  We have the occasional little blood spot, but this was pretty gross.  We don't eat all of our eggs (sell about 75% of them) but no one has ever mentioned getting an egg like this.  Hopefully it is just a one-of-a-kind thing.

Don't be scared- I had store bought eggs for the first time today at a charity breakfast and they were gross! sickbyc

Just remember to crack your eggs in a separate bowl before using (I have always done that- even with store bought eggs)
