    My Polish chicken laid her first small white egg today but it had several streaks of blood on it.
    This has not happened to my other two chickens.

    She is still behaving like a happy chicken but I want to know if I should be worried and has this happened to anyone else? Thanks!

    All of my chickens had a bit of blood on their first egg or two. Shouldn't be anything to worry about.
