    One of our Red Star hens has been laying eggs with some blood on them. They all seem fine, and have been laying an egg every day(we have 4 hens and we get 3-4 eggs a day).

    Any thoughts? Their vents seem fine, except for some minor peck marks from the bossy old hen of the group. [​IMG]

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I have them show up randomly from my girls, I think a small blood vessel in their vent some times breaks when they lay, but I'm just guessing.

    Yeah that could be it, Cats Critters. None of them seem lethargic or anything. [​IMG]
