What are these red specks in my eggs, worms?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Just wondering what these might be, I get one about every two days with 5 laying hens.  Hope they aren't a *worm* of some kind.  I planned on worming later today since my Valbezan finally showed up.  Quick thoughts?  Darn camera card is full and I can't get a close, close up picture.

They are blood spots, nothing to worry about. These are worms in eggs...extra meat with your eggs!  droolin.gif

The worms shown in post #2 are large roundworms and are very common. They are not commonly found in eggs though.
