i have 9 hens and 1 rooster. A variety of breeds buff Orphington speckled Sussex and cinnamon queens. My one buff Orphington has been very broody. I am not sure if the new were rooster is even doing his job but what would cause blood spots in eggs? Does this mean I am getting fertile eggs from my broody hen?

Blood in eggs has nothing to do with being fertile. It's extra tissue from the oviduct incorporated into the egg. I see it more when a hen was jumping around the day before. Blood vessels can rupture from frantic activity. I've seen them much worse.

Right, called 'meat spots'.
