    How old is she? Small amount of blood on shell or in egg contents? Either way there is probably nothing wrong,this sometimes can happen. Watch her to see if it happens again.

    She's probably fine. A blood spot on the outside of the egg can ocurr when the hen has a little difficulty laying the egg. Every once in a while, one of my hens lays a slightly bloody egg. As long as it doesn't ocurr all the time, she's probably fine.

    Thank you friends for the answers. She just started laying eggs a month ago and it was the first time I saw it. It did not happen today so I guess she was having trouble pushing the egg out. Hens must feel like giving birth, I guess, or may be not, cause egg laying happens almost every day
