    I have a chicken laying a huge egg with two yolks in it every day and yesterday one of them had blood on it, so my question is should I be worried?

    If she is laying huge eggs, than it's possible that she tore a little. If you keep seeing a lot of blood on her eggs, than I would be worried. If it only happens once of twice, than she's probably fine.

    Welcome, I'm new too. I agree with everyone's advice about "wait and see".
