That is pretty common with newer layers, and sometimes can happen occasionally to more experienced layers.
Thank you! I am assuming you mean that it isn't any cause for worry at the moment. Ah, grand!
I think that we all have seen a few blood-smeared eggs with our newer layers. If there was a lot of blood, then I would get concerned. Good luck.

I purchased 25 araucauna pullets from Rural King and 3 Leghorns from a local farm store and all but 3 of them have the same problem (very bloody eggs). Their origins are with Townline hatchery. None of my other hens have this problem. Do you know which hatchery yours came from?
Sometimes I get eggs that look the same way, I kind of freaked out when I saw the first one with blood on it's shell.
