    my silkie hen daisy is about 7 month old and lays an egg almost every day. lately 3 out of 6 eggs are really bloody. the blood is not a meat spot! it´s in the egg white and when i crack the egg open it dyes the whole egg light red. at first i thought it wasn´t a big deal and it´s just a broken blood vesel and it won´t happen again. but now i´m worried that there is something seriously wrong with her. any ideas what it could be?

    I use Poultry NutriDrench. Just mix it exactly as recommended. Too much will cause diarrhea.
