    My Ameraucanas will not stop laying bloody eggs! They started a week or two ago! So my question is, is this normal or do I need to be worried.

    Small amounts of blood on eggs is somewhat normal with new layers from time to time, but should not continue for very long or at least we do not see it continue for long in our flocks. Keep an eye on her and be sure she is not bleeding excessively after laying and if not she should be fine once things are smoothed out inside her.

    There are rare times when this can lead to trouble, but most times will be fine....
