    Yolk specks?

    Hello all, I'm very new to raising chickens and have been getting eggs from one of my girls that contain small specks. See attached pic. What are these and is it ok to eat? Also, is it something that can be corrected with their diet or something else? Thank you very much for your help. Sam
