    I have seven hens and get 5-7 eggs per day. I would say about 40% of the time when I crack an egg to eat in the mornings the yolk will have a small blood speck about 1/8 inch in size. Sometimes there might be several of them, only smaller. Dont really want to eat it, I just usually pick it out and go ahead and cook the egg. Is this normal or is something going on with my hens plumbing? Thanks
