    I have two young pullets in the house( one Golden Seebright and one orp mutt) that have both produced a bit of a blood "spray" in their enclosures. It is clearly eviden that these "sprays" came from thier vents and actually did spray out of the birds. Is this normal behaviour prior to the begining of egg laying ?
    I have never seen this in any of my outside coops.
