Hello! I'm new to this site, so please pardon me until I get the hang of this thread and posting in the right place thing!
I have a cherry egger that is laying an occasional egg that looks to either have smeared the bloom color all over as she laid it, or it has dried blood on it. This is the second egg i have found like this. The two times it happened, it happened at least 2 weeks apart. I have two cherry egger hens, so I am not sure which is laying eggs that look like this. They both seem alert and cheerful, and come running for me to pick them up when i go to their pen. As far as I can tell, they are eating and drinking like they should.
What could this be, and what would be the cause and solution? I have only had chickens for a couple of years, and I have been fortunate to not have had any issues with my girls, until this.
