    I have a bantam OEG that is approx. 35 weeks old and started laying maybe about a month ago. As far as i know she is acting fine, she is very laid bad and might be ruffling her feathes more often. She lays every day and i have only seen blood on th eggs once today and once a little bit ago. As far as i know, no other bird has had blood come out when laying an egg. I am not sure what could have caused this. She eats layer crumbles and always has water available. I havent seen any bloody or runny poop. I havent given her any treatments so far. She is in a clean enviroment and i use wood shavings as bedding.

    Sometimes they are just working out the kinks in the plumbing. I have occasionally seen blood on my eggs, but no one has had any problems as yet. I think your girl should be fine.

    Good luck.
