weird spot in egg of welsummer

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 my welsummers occasionally have these (i'm assuming) blood clots in the whites of the eggs. My other chickens do not have this issue and it's not every welsummer egg. Does this happen to other individuals also?

Blood spots and meat spots happen.  Nothing to worry about.

I'll never develop a thick skin.  Thick skin leads to a hard heart and I never want to be one of those people.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

My Wellsummer hen is also the only hen that has this issue.  Almost every egg she lays has the same spots in the white.  I just remove them when cooking.
