    Is it normal to have blood in an egg when there isn't a rooster with them?

    It happens. Sometimes a blood vessel breaks as the yolk is released from the ovary.

    Quote:Okay thanks. I was thinking something like that might have happened. Is it okay to eat or should it be scooped out?

    If it doesn't bother you, eat it. It won't hurt you. [​IMG]

    Happened most as my production reds started laying, but hasn't happened recently.
