    hey guys! My leghorns egg was covered in blood last night. Checker her out this morning. Her vent looks god except when she turns it out there’s like a little blood bubble. It reminds me of a hemorade. What should I do?

    Photos would help. More information would also help.

    -Is she behaving normally?
    -Or is she lethargic?
    -Was the egg soft shelled or normal?
    -How often does she lay?
    -Is she a new layer or older?
    -How old is she?
    -Does she spend long periods on the nest before finally pushing out her egg?

    Hard to get a picture
    Normal
    No she’s fine
    Normal shell
    6 out of 7 days
    New and old (my first layer of the group)
    Almost a year old
    I’m not sure I do think so. She seems to be in and out about the same amount as the other girls.

    I have no clue what you mean by this.

    Given that she appears to be normal in every other respect, her bloody egg was probably a one-time event. But you should probably keep an eye on her.

    It was to fix what I had say either. Today was another normal egg but no blood.
