Ever since this huge egg a few days ago, all three of my white leghorn's eggs (which have been normal sized since)have had blood smears on them. Is that just because she is recovering from that huge thing, or should I be concerned? There are no visible signs of blood on her backside.

Looks like the one my BR laid a week ago. As long as she looks good and eating well, the layer of this gigantic egg should be ok.

she seems to be ok. She is eating and active, and doesnt look any worse for wear. However, today, I was looking at her and she had some blood smears on the feathers on her two sides. Oh well, she's fine I guess. Im not going to worry too much, she is all over the place and acts perfectly normal. I guess she's just got a sore hiney....

I don't think there's much you can do about it, except give it some time. Poor girl! That was a whopper of an egg! Hopefully, she'll be better soon.

I've had pullet eggs with blood smears a few times, when they first started to lay. They all healed fine.
