    Should i be worried? There was a little steak of blood on her shell. All my hens seem to struggle when they lay their eggs. Is there anything to give them to make laying eggs easier?

    A little blood on the eggshell with new layers is not cause for alarm. Sometimes even the older hens will do it if the egg is unusually large.
