    If you are unsure if an egg is good, you can try the sink or float test before you crack them open. Fill a dish or pan with water. Put the egg in it. If it sinks to the bottom, it is OK. If it has bouyancy (floats), toss it. Also, what you call "traces of blood" may just be meat spots. They won't hurt you. Do a search of "meat spots" on this forum. There is lots of info. They just occur naturally sometimes.
