Blood streaks on outside of shell.

  1. Two eggs in a row I have seen blood streaks on the eggs. Not sure which bird, but definately the same bird. It lays long, oblong eggs. It almost looks as if the egg was layed, then the blood splattered and ran down the egg. Split vessel?

    It is from a new layer or someone laying larger eggs. It is from being stretched out. If it is a really big egg look at there bums and make sure everyone is ok.
     
  6. It does not seem any bigger, but very oblong. I will check the bums...

    I had a EE egg this morning the same. Almost covered in streaks. I have 2 EE hens and could not catch either one to check. They seem fine to me.
