    I have five hens and they have been laying great this winter but I have noticed that over the last few months I have been a getting an egg that has quite a bit of blood in the yolk this blood is bright red.. I was wondering if anyone has had this before. I have gotten about five or so eggs like this.

    I had a blood streak across the yolk
    and a bloody yolk from my australorp "annie"
    when she was a year old.
    I dont know the cause,
    and it hasent happened for year.
    tho her eggs whites apear watery,and thinner
    than the others.
    I would like to know what is causing that also.
    when I give eggs to my friends and family
    I keep hers to myself.
