We have had chickens for the last 7-8 years and have on occasion gotten a blood spot in our eggs. We always have had a rooster and was always told that is why the blood spots. Our rooster died just after Thanksgiving 2010. Just when the wether changed and the hens stopped laying eggs. Over the past month we are getting eggs from the hens again, we have no rooster. Every egg we have cracked open has a blood spot in it. We have more eggs with blood spots on them then when we had when our rooster was with us. Is it something we are doing wrong? We are feeding the same diet that we always have. The only difference that our hens are without a rooster. Our hens never hatched peeps, even though they have sat forever, but never any peeps. Any help would be great. We want to eat our eggs, not through them out because of a gross blood spot that we see when we crack open a freshly laied eggs.
