    I've found 2 eggs in the past month that had a little bit of blood on the outside. I have no idea what chicken they came from, and all of them look & act healthy. If it happens again, is it something I should worry about?

    yep whenever mine go a period without laying it happens, or if they are young and just start laying especially.

    Thanks, guys! I wasn't too worried since the ladies were all acting fine, but I wanted to check. [​IMG]
