    Just collected eggs and found blood around the walls of a nesting box as well as some splatter in the coop. (Not a walk in coop, but a rabbit hutch type of coop- small area, not a great deal of blood, but not just a drop or two either). 7 hens, mixed breeds, all look fine. No visible blood or injuries anywhere. Should I be concerned? What can I do?

    If it was a mouse or such, do I need to scrub the blood off the surfaces?
