    Now i don't know which end of the egg comes out or is supposed(?) to come out of the vent first but in the first pic it is clear that the egg came out big end first. Is this the problem ? Or do eggs come out either end first and if so is there somethin else goin on here ?

    Do you know which chicken? I would examine her the best you can, see if she has an injury or something

    the blood comes from a vessel breaking as she lays the egg.an alot of times young pullets will have blood on the 1st few eggs they lay.because their bodies are adjusting to laying.
