    How long after hens start to lay should it take for the blood spot to go away. I have read the vit K thing but my girls free range. I feed them spinach and one of them always has a small blood spot in her egg.

    we went through that with one of our hens and it finally went away after about 3 weeks, Once in a great while we will have an egg come up with a blood spot but nothing to get excited about.
