    Looks like a huge blood clot. Should I be concerned? Anyone please advise. IMG_20180324_124031 (1).jpeg

    More than likely she got knocked around in the last few days. If that's the case the blood in the eggs should. Blood inside an egg is generally from ruptured blood vessels.

    Have had a few of those.
    As long as it doesn't happen regularly, I'd not worry.
    It certainly is alarming tho, eh?
    It will have you opening eggs one at a time in a separate dish before adding them to pan or recipe for quite some time.
