    Just got a first egg from one of my pullets (not sure which one). It's a very small egg but there was a streak of blood on the egg. All the pullets seem fine. Is it normal for there to be a little blood?

    It's normal. If it's her first egg it's completely normal for some hens to have a streak of blood when they lay their first eggs
