do you have any that were getting close to laying, those first eggs can look pretty bad I guarantee you that, but usually doesn't continue. if all of your hens are laying with no up and coming then I would worryJust found this egg. Should I be worried and try to locate the hen? If so, what do you suggest? Do you think I can see a bloody butt also?
In the meantime will try to find more about this problem.
Aint that the truth, had one hen that she's have her beak in the air and but almost on the ground every time she laid an egg but only one bloody one like thatIs it a pullet just starting out? It looks like a little capillary broke in the laying process. I don't think you need to worry about it unless it's a consistent problem. It's a lot of work to lay an egg and sometimes little capillaries will break, but heal right back up.
