    One of my ee's laid a mega egg and inside was one yolk, LOTS of blood and 2 dark masses. Yuck. Should I be concerned?

    At least I don't THINK I have a rooster. they are 9 months old. How can I tell if one is a rooster?

    Okay then that is really weird....
    It could also be her shedding some inner lining (which I guess is completely normal) but I've never actually heard of it being IN the egg... Only in their poo.

    If it happens again, definately take a pic. The BYC geniuses could tell you for sure what it is if they can see it.

    Quote:Hahaha at 9 months old, you would know already. He would be noisy and much bigger than the girls. And his combs and wattles would be about twice the size of theirs.
