    Is this normal? Does anyone know what would cause it?
    Thanks for your help.

    That looks like it was incubating. Looks like an embryo. I had a leghorn that laid bloody eggs don't know why. She went to the soup pot. I had a co-worker that got one and they weren't happy and haven't ask for eggs since.
